in reply to spreadsheet formula issue

I ran your script using the following modified lines, as it didn't require a database transaction:

#set columns A through D $xWS2->set_column( 'A:D', 20 ); # Add column headers for first worksheet my $R = 0; my $C = 0; $xWS->write( $R, $C++, $_ ) for 'A' .. 'Z'; # Read the query results and write them into the spreadsheet for ( 1 .. 26 ) { ++$R; $C = 0; $xWS->write( $R, $C++, $_ ); }

Results in cells E2:E6:

0 0 0 0 6

The formulas in E2:E5 of the "Summary" sheet evalute to 0 because columns B and D are empty in the spreadsheet your script creates. However, you'll note that the '=1+5' in cell E6 is correctly evaluated.

Hope this is helpful.

    Ok. But why is it empty? because the workbook is still open? Do I need to close it and then re open it?
