in thread Using Win32::OLE and Excel - Tips and Tricks

What is the best way to determine all of the valid fields and subfields for Perl/OLE/Excel information. It is only by studying examples did I learn that Cell->Interior->ColorIndex gets the cell background color, and everything I have learned is by Web examples. Is there a definitive document for all of the possible fields?

    The reference document is the object reference and definition. You can "Browse" it via the tool written by Jan DuBois that I mentioned in the preface of this tutorial.


    Point it at the Microsoft Excel XX.XX objects and browse until your heart's content.

      Thanks, but with win2k, IE5, IE6, ActiveState 5.6, ActiveState 5.8 I just get page with about 5 empty white frames. I will try some other computers tommorow. thank you for the quick reply, tom friedel
        That means that PerlScript is not working correctly on your machine. Did you install ActivePerl via the MSI? If not, then you may need to register it manually with:
        regsvr32 c:\perl\bin\perlse.dll
        or whereever you installed ActivePerl. This registration needs to be done with Administrator privileges. If the OLE browser still doesn't work after registering the PerlScript engine, then you may have problems with your IE security settings (please check the docs). Make sure it is enabled for the local zone, and for the local zone only.
