Then, of course, you could what I would do, which is to automate Excel from perl, using OLE. You could so easily stuff the data into Excel from perl, tell Excel what to do (delete columns, sort, etc.), and suck the data back, all programmatically.

    Or do what I do and implement perlish things in VB and get the job done natively.

    Added You'd think people would glark from context that perl is my preferred language. Its just not what I get to use at work so I spend some time creating support perlisms in VB and get my job done easier and faster. And its not that I don't know how the VB-way would have me do it — I just happen to know that by using some sprinklings of perl-thought the resultant code will be clearer and not the ugly gobs it'd be otherwise. Sheesh. Its not as if I actually said "go use VB" or anything.
