I'm assuming you have an existing spreadsheet which you need to update and write to a new file. I have two generic subroutines I use to read/write Excel files. I would do it this way:
  1. Read in all rows from existing file
  2. Update the rows
  3. Write the updated rows to new file
use strict; use warnings; use Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX; use Excel::Writer::XLSX; my $in_file = "SRC185.xlsx"; my $out_file = "Output2022.xlsx"; # Read in all rows from existing file my $rows = read_excel($in_file); my $headers = [ "source_id", "first_name", "middle", "last_name", "address1", "city", "state", "postal_code", "phone_number", "address3", "province", "email", ]; my $CA_zip = 90005; # Update the rows for my $row (@$rows) { if ($row->[6] eq 'CA' && ! $row->[7]) { $row->[7] = $CA_zip; } } # add headers as first row unshift(@$rows, $headers); # Write the updated rows to new file my $col_num = scalar @$headers - 1; write_excel($out_file, $rows, $col_num); sub read_excel { my ( $file, $sheet ) = @_; $sheet ||= 0; my $parser = Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX->new(); my $workbook = $parser->parse($file); if ( not defined $workbook ) { die $parser->error; } my $worksheet = $workbook->worksheet($sheet); my ( $row_min, $row_max ) = $worksheet->row_range(); my ( $col_min, $col_max ) = $worksheet->col_range(); my @rows; for my $row ( $row_min .. $row_max ) { my @cells; for my $col ( $col_min .. $col_max ) { my $cell = $worksheet->get_cell( $row, $col ); if (not $cell) { push(@cells,''); next; } my $value = $cell->value(); push(@cells,$value); } push(@rows,\@cells); } return \@rows; } sub write_excel { my ( $file, $rows, $col_max ) = @_; my $workbook = Excel::Writer::XLSX->new( $file ); if ( not defined $workbook ) { die "Could not open file: $!"; } my $worksheet = $workbook->add_worksheet(); my $row_num = 0; for my $row ( @$rows ) { for my $col (0 .. $col_max) { $worksheet->write( $row_num, $col, $row->[$col] ); } $row_num++; } $workbook->close(); return; }

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
