lepetitalbert has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

dear Monks,

After a couple of hours reading stuff about 'bless' due to a

Can't call method "Workbooks" on unblessed reference

I still don't understand.

the error come from the last line :

my $excel_template = $file_sys_path . $invoice_page_name; my $Excel = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application') or Win32: +:OLE->new('Excel.Application', 'Quit') or die "Could not start excel" +; $Excel->{'Visible'} = 0; $Excel->{DisplayAlerts} = 0; my $book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open( $excel_template ) or die ; # open +Excel file

I have no idea about what I have to bless : $book, $Excel or $excel_template.

Any hint is welcome

Have a nice day
