NAME

Spreadsheet::XLSX - Perl extension for reading MS Excel 2007 files;

SYNOPSIS

    use Text::Iconv;
    my $converter = Text::Iconv->new("utf-8", "windows-1251");
    
    # Text::Iconv is not really required.
    # This can be any object with the convert method. Or nothing.
    
    use Spreadsheet::XLSX;
    
    my $excel = Spreadsheet::XLSX->new('test.xlsx', $converter);
    
    foreach my $sheet (@{$excel->{Worksheet}}) {
    
        printf("Sheet: %s\n", $sheet->{Name});
        
        $sheet->{MaxRow} ||= $sheet->{MinRow};
        
        foreach my $row ($sheet->{MinRow} .. $sheet->{MaxRow}) {
             
            $sheet->{MaxCol} ||= $sheet->{MinCol};
            
            foreach my $col ($sheet->{MinCol} ..  $sheet->{MaxCol}) {
            
                my $cell = $sheet->{Cells}[$row][$col];
        
                if ($cell) {
                    printf("( %s , %s ) => %s\n", $row, $col, $cell->{Val});
                }
        
            }
        
        }
    
    }

DESCRIPTION

This module is a (quick and dirty) emulation of Spreadsheet::ParseExcel for Excel 2007 (.xlsx) file format. It supports styles and many of Excel's quirks, but not all. It populates the classes from Spreadsheet::ParseExcel for interoperability; including Workbook, Worksheet, and Cell.

SEE ALSO

Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX

This module has some serious issues with the way it uses regexs for parsing the XML. I would strongly encourage switching to Spreadsheet::ParseXLSX which takes a more reliable approach.

Text::CSV_XS, Text::CSV_PP
Spreadsheet::ParseExcel
Spreadsheet::ReadSXC
Spreadsheet::BasicRead

for xlscat likewise functionality (Excel only)

Spreadsheet::ConvertAA

for an alternative set of cell2cr() / cr2cell() pair

Spreadsheet::Perl

offers a Pure Perl implementation of a spreadsheet engine. Users that want this format to be supported in Spreadsheet::Read are hereby motivated to offer patches. It's not high on my todo-list.

xls2csv

https://metacpan.org/release/KEN/xls2csv-1.07 offers an alternative for my xlscat -c, in the xls2csv tool, but this tool focusses on character encoding transparency, and requires some other modules.

Spreadsheet::Read

read the data from a spreadsheet (interface module)
