OK, here's the thing:
my $Excel = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application') || Win32: +:OLE->new('Excel.Application', sub {$_[0]->Quit;}); my $Book = $Excel->Workbooks->Open(MYFILE, 1, 1); my $Sheet = $Book->Worksheets("WORKSHEETNAME"); $Sheet->Activate(); my $value = $Sheet->Range("SOMECELL")->{Value};

I can't give you the spreadsheet, it's not mine, sorry (company policy)...
When I print out the $value, I get the same result over and over (that is "-2146826259", and the expected result should be a positive number not bigger than 100,000). If I use:
my $value = $Sheet->Range("SOMECELL")->Text();

to retrieve cell data then I get #NAME!.
I even tried debugging like this:
if (ref($value)) { print $value->Type(); }

and it returns "10", which is VT_ERROR. I repeat, when you look at it in Excel application, it displays the correct results.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
