Hi,

I am using Spreadsheet Save Parser module as below --

use Spreadsheet::ParseExcel::SaveParser;
 my $wr_parser  = Spreadsheet::ParseExcel::SaveParser->new();
 my $wr_workbook = $wr_parser->Parse("Test.xls");
  my $wr_worksheet = $wr_workbook->{Worksheet}[0];

Here I am specifying the first sheet to be updated as [0].

Can I specify the sheetname here instead of [0] $wr_workbook->{Worksheet}[0];
?

Alternatively, is there a way that given a sheetname, I can find its sheet no and then use it as above.

Sure.  You only have to change the way you are selecting the worksheet.
use Spreadsheet::ParseExcel::SaveParser;
my $wr_parser  = Spreadsheet::ParseExcel::SaveParser->new();
my $wr_workbook = $wr_parser->Parse("Test.xls");
my $wr_worksheet = $wr_workbook->worksheet('sheetname');

Open in new window
