How do I prevent leading zeroes from not getting truncated while retrieving excel value in Perl

I have a problem. When I am trying to read the AUDIT_ACCT_NUM field from the excel sheet, if the value is "0ABC123",  the $audit_acct_num is retrieved as "0ABC123" which is correct. But if the field has only nos. like "0123", it is getting retrieved as "123" with the leading zero being truncated which is wrong. I tried to make the format of the column as "Text" manually, but still no effect. How can I change the format in the code so that this is solved?

Attached is the code
#!/usr/bin/perl5.10 -w

use DBI;
use DBD::MSDB2;
use File::Copy qw(cp);
use Carp;



$SIG{__DIE__} = sub { confess @_ };
$SIG{__WARN__} = sub { confess @_ };


my $sql_parser   = Spreadsheet::ParseExcel->new();
my $sql_workbook = $sql_parser->parse("Temp_Res3.xls");
my $sql_worksheet =  $sql_workbook->worksheet("Delta");


my ( $row_min, $row_max ) = $sql_worksheet->row_range();
my ( $col_min, $col_max ) = $sql_worksheet->col_range();
for my $row ( $row_min .. $row_max ) {
   my $xls = "Temp_Res3_Int.xls";
   my $workbook  = Spreadsheet::WriteExcel->new($xls);
   my $worksheet = $workbook->addworksheet("Delta");
   
   my $format1 = $workbook->add_format();
   my $format2 = $workbook->add_format();




$format1->set_size(12);
$format1->set_bold();
$format1->set_color('blue');
$format1->set_align('center');
$format1->set_bg_color('yellow');


   
   for my $col ($col_min .. $col_max) {
      my $cell = $sql_worksheet->get_cell($row,$col);

Maybe this helps:

Add a     '            before your string, this will make Excel recognize it as a string under any circumstances.

Can you pls tell me where to do this? I think I already tried that..

Here are my 2 codes, one calls the other, the second one prints the values out.

The same problem is still there, where it prints any account no. as 123 which should be "0123" as it is in the excel sheet, but if it is "0XYZ" it is getting printed as "0XYZ"

Code 1 is attached , Code 2 is below ---

Any help with this? If I can somehow use write_string method instead of write in Code 1 to write the AUDIT_ACCT_NUM column, it can be done. But it has to be only for that column and not for others as it is entering an unnecessary 0 at the beginning of every value where there is an integer. How do I implement it? Help me pls..

This working...since I know the ACCT_NUM col is 30, I can do this --

if ($col == 30) {
$worksheet->write_string($row,30,$cell->value);
}
else {$worksheet->write($row,$col,$cell->value);}


I am closing the question...
