in reply to Excel Formatting

For setting the column format, try this:
my $trans_format = $workbook->add_format(); $trans_format->set_num_format('$0.00'); #... $worksheet->set_column('I:I', undef, $trans_format);
For column J, just don't write to the column:
my $row = 2; while (<FH>) { chomp; @keepers = split /,/, $_, 10; pop @keepers; # only get first 9 columns $worksheet->write_row($row, 0, \@keepers, $cell_format); $row++; } $worksheet->write_formula('I1', '=SUM (I3:I262)'); $worksheet->set_column('I:I', undef, $trans_format);
Update: replaced write() with write_row()

    Hi Count, thanks so much for the input! However, I am still getting the column J and not getting my currency format when I try that..?
      You are applying the currency format at the end, after you have written all the data? (before closing the file, of course).
        Yes. I have tried declaring
        my $trans_format = $workbook->add_format(); $trans_format->set_num_format('$0.00');
        where I set my other formats and after the while loop. I have also done $worksheet->set_column('I:I', undef, $trans_format); after the while loop. I can't figure it out..
      UPDATE:Actually replacing that while statement with my previous one worked to remove J column, but I still don't have the currency format.
