One of my great regrets is that you cant use Perl as Excels macro language.
But you can...

Update: I'm posting the text of that link here, because I think its valuable to have in more than one place:

If you haven't got the Microsoft Script Control, download it from some +where in []. Then in Excel, set Tools - References - Microsoft Script Control. In your code, you can now eval and execute Perl code, and use it in an +y Functions that you've declared as public - here's a trivial example +: Option Explicit Private sc As New ScriptControl Public Function uc(txt As String) As String sc.Language = "PerlScript" uc = sc.Eval("uc(" & txt & ")") End Function Now you can type =uc("hello") in your spreadsheet to call the above fu +nction. You can even use modules; I had an example using Lingua::EN::Numbers, +but I can't lay my hands on it at the moment. Hope this helps.

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.
