WriteExcel AVERAGE containing variable as end Range

I have a perl program that uses Spreadsheet::WriteExcel.   I am using the AVERAGE and SUM functionality in the following manner:
      $worksheet->write('D'.$nplay, '=AVERAGE(D2:D26)',$average);
      $worksheet->write('E'.$nplay, '=AVERAGE(E2:D26)',$onezero);
      $worksheet->write('K'.$nplay, '=SUM(K2:K26)',$currency);
      $worksheet->write('O'.$nplay, '=SUM(O2:O26)',$currency);

This works fine most of the time but the problem is that the end of the range can change on occasion.  I need to be able to replace the "26" in each of the above examples with a variable.  I have tried the following and it does not seem to be correct syntax:
my $avg1="D".$avg;       
$worksheet->write('D'.$nplay, '=AVERAGE(D2:"$avg1")',$average);

any help here would be greatly appreciated.
