Re: Error getting number of rows in excel.

in reply to Error getting number of rows in excel.

I've never used it before, but isn't it possible to retrieve a column with data as list? In that case you could simply do something like: $rowCount = scalar @data;. However, I've no experience with OLE programming with Perl, so I could be mumbling utter nonsense... :-)

Hope it helps...

    No, that won't work (without additional code, at least). OLE collections are strange beasties that don't map nicely into Perl data structures. I wish they would....
