in reply to Reading from Excel

As I mentioned deeper in the response tree, you might need to calculate the page, especially if you have DisplayAlerts = 0 or the cell references data from another sheet.
use strict; use Win32::OLE qw(in with); use Win32::OLE::Const 'Microsoft Excel'; my $Excel = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application') || Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application', 'Quit'); $Excel->{DisplayAlerts}=0; my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open($excelfile); my $Sheet = $Book->Worksheets("Sheet1"); $Sheet->Activate(); $Sheet->Calculate(); #The rest of your GET code here
It's happened to me before.
