my $wbk = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new ($xls); my $wks = $wbk->add_worksheet (); my $fmt = $wbk->add_format (align => "center", num_format => "dd-mm-yy +yy"); $wks->write ($row, $col, $date, $fmt);

update: After a question in a /msg, I checked what the value of $date must be:

use Spreadsheet::WriteExcel; use Date::Calc qw( Delta_Days ); my $wbk = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new ("test.xls"); my $wks = $wbk->add_worksheet (); my $dtf = $wbk->add_format (align => "center", num_format => "yyyy-mm- +dd"); my $dt = 20180406; # Dates need a special treat ... my ($y, $m, $d) = unpack "A4A2A2" => $dt; $dt = 2 + Delta_Days (1900, 1, 1, $y, $m, $d); $wks->write (2, 1, $dt); $wks->write (2, 3, $dt, $dtf); # THIS WORKS for the formatted value # Alternatively use $wks->write_date_time ("D2", "2018-04-06T16:17", $dtf); $wbk->close;

And IMHO M/D/YY should hardcoded be forbidden in all cases. Use ISO!

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

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.
