Here is a Win32::OLE example:

use Win32::OLE; # If Excel is already running it uses the copy in memory eval {$ex = Win32::OLE->GetActiveObject('Excel.Application')}; if ($@) { $ex = Win32::OLE->new('Excel.Application', sub {$_[0]->Quit;}) or die; } # open an existing workbook $book = $ex->Workbooks->Open( 'yourdoc.xls' ); #write to a cell $book->Worksheets(1)->Cells(1,1)->Value = "whatever"; #save and exit $book->Save; undef $book; undef $ex;
This should get you pointed in the right direction, if you are looking for more documentation check out some of the previous issue of "The Perl Journal" I know there was some good write up in there, and also O'Reillys Perl Resource Kit Win32 Edition has more then enough to tackle this type of job.

check this review as well Spreadsheet::WriteExcel

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.
