Hi, I am using win32::OLE to draw chart in MS Excel & then exporting it to a png file. I was able to draw graph on excel & save it. but am getting an error while exporting it to the png file. Exporting part of the script is as follows.
use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Excel'; use Win32::OLE::Variant; use Win32::OLE::NLS qw(:LOCALE :DATE); use Win32::OLE; use Win32::OLE::Const; $Win32::OLE::Warn = 3; # die on errors... my $filter = 'PNG'; # can be GIF, JPG, JPEG or PNG $filename = "C:\\graph1.xls"; my $Excel = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application', 'Quit'); # use the Exc +el application if it's open, otherwise open new my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open( $filename ); # open the fi +le foreach my $Sheet (in $Book->Sheets) { # loop through all shee +ts foreach my $ChartObj (in $Sheet->ChartObjects) { # loop throug +h all chartobjects in the sheet #$pngsave = join("",split(/\s+/,$graphtitle)); $dirpath = "c:\\ExcelTest"; mkdir ("$dirpath", 0777); my $savename = "$dirpath\\test" . ".$filter"; # Write image to PNG file $ChartObj->Chart->Export({ FileName => $savename1, FilterName => $filter, Interactive => 0}); } }
The error I get is
Win32::OLE<0.1701> error 0x800a03ec in METHOD/PROPERTYGET "Export" at C:\ line 26
What does this mean?

Can anyone plz help me in resolving it?
