That is very true but I would advise against it. It forces you into supporting multiple platforms. If you do everything in Perl through Win32::OLE, then your developers must know Perl and the OLE package, however if you divide your development into Perl and VBA, you put extra stress on your development by requiring knowledge of both.

That being said, I know that you're using the same objects, but the programming is done diferently, (and more robustly IHMO) in Perl. I know it sounds like a zealot's way, but I say keep it all in Perl. The manipulation you can perform on your data that you are interacting with is much more robust in Perl than in VBA.

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.
