in reply to Spreadsheet:: parseexcel XLSX

I assume that most people dealing with this issue have installed Excel::Writer::XLSX. If ActiveState doesn't offer it, maybe you need to contact their (paid) support for old versions of Perl?

An alternative could be to just use a more recent version of Perl for your tool.

    There is a lock icon next to 5.8 at http://code.activestate.com/ppm/Excel-Writer-XLSX/, and if you click it, it shows there is a really old version available (if you have username/password) for 5.8 ... makes sense, really old perl is really old :)

    or *cough*cough* just use cpanp/cpanm to install the latest Excel::Writer::XLSX from cpan, its pure perl after all :)

      I guess cpanp needs a newer perl to work? as it is not recognized on Windows

        Why guess? Click the link and find out ... Does it matter? You can use cpan also... or download the tarball yourself and do the Makefile.PL dance yourself
