in reply to How to insert file objects into excel sheets?

The best way to automate Excel is to use the macro recorder, perform the steps you want to do, then view the VBA source of the actions.

Once you have that, you can convert that to perl.

#!perl use Win32::OLE; my $_app_object = (Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application')); sub Macro1 { # Macro1 Macro # Macro recorded 11/4/2009 $_app_object->Range('B3')->Select(); $_app_object->ActiveSheet->OLEObjects->Add({Filename => 'C:\\Docum +ents and Settings\\User\\My Documents\\Sitemap.xml', Link => 0, Displ +ayAsIcon => 0})->Select(); }

[choroba]: managed to release Syntax::Construct with 5.28 support in the night, though
[Corion]: choroba: Whee ;)
[Corion]: marto: Ouch - I would've thought that kids adapt much better, but that's obviously not the case...
[marto]: well, their mother let them sleep till 15:00 & 12:00 last week, which didn't help them adjust :P
[Corion]: I was "productive" over the weekend in the sense that I revived my old "Perlmonks on SQLite" code, which likely means I can get a test instance back up running on my webhost. Small steps :)
[Corion]: marto: Ow, no, that doesn't help at all :)
[choroba]: Related to the new release, anyone could explain this or this tester report?
[Discipulus]: hello crew! marto thanks for the message: but I how can I help? i'm testing cpan Padre atm problem with Client::Debug
[choroba]: I don't happen to have 5.10.0 nor 5.8.5 handy...

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
