    Yes,currently I'm using Spreadsheet::WriteExcel.


      In that case try the write_date_time solution Tux suggested here

      #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel; use DBI; my $dbh = get_dbh(); # connect as req my $workbook = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new( 'perl.xls' ); my $worksheet = $workbook->add_worksheet(); # set column format my $datecol = 19; my $date_format = $workbook->add_format(num_format=>'m/d/yyyy h:mm'); $worksheet->set_column($datecol,$datecol,15,$date_format);#width 15 my $sql = "SELECT * FROM test21"; my $sth = $dbh->prepare($sql); $sth->execute; my $row2 = 1; while (my $aref = $sth->fetchrow_arrayref){ # convert to ISO8601 my $date = $aref->[$datecol]; $date =~ s/ /T/; print "$date\n"; $aref->[$datecol] = ''; $worksheet->write_row($row2,0,$aref); $worksheet->write_date_time($row2,$datecol,$date); ++$row2; } $workbook->close;
        Hi All,

        Now the custom format has been applied but what I exactly need is, when we export data and print in excel,in the date field when I give filter option, it is just showing the dates but What i need is It should come Year wise and under the years, it should be month wise.

        Please provide support and Thank you so much for the help which let me set custom formats.
