( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

You need to
    use Data::Dumper;
in order for the  Dumper function to be accessible in your code; then
    print Dumper $sheet;
will actually print something. See Data::Dumper. (I tend to like Data::Dump a bit better.)

... even though I have:
$sheet = $book->[$sheet_index] or next;
this does not seem to be doing the trick.

But my point remains the same: in order for a statement like
    $name = $sheet{"${_}28"};
to work, a hash named  %sheet must exist somewhere in your code (somewhere in scope, that is). I.e., there must be a statement something like
    my %sheet = ( ... );
somewhere. Do you say that such a statement exists?

Update: The other point to make is that if the  %sheet hash actually does exist, the expressions  $sheet{"F28"} and  $sheet->{"F28"} access two completely different hashes!

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.
