NAME

PURPOSE

To actually write stuff to the worksheet

NODE NAME

CELL

INHERITANCE

ELEMENT

ATTRIBUTES

  • TEXT

    This is the text to write to the cell. This can either be text or a parameter with a dollar-sign in front of the parameter name.

  • COL

    Optionally, you can specify which column you want this cell to be in. It can be either a number (zero-based) or an offset. See Excel::Template for more info on offset-based numbering.

  • REF

    Adds the current cell to the a list of cells that can be backreferenced. This is useful when the current cell needs to be referenced by a formula. See BACKREF and RANGE.

  • WIDTH

    Sets the width of the column the cell is in. The last setting for a given column will win out.

  • TYPE

    This allows you to specify what write_*() method will be used. The default is to call write() and let Spreadsheet::WriteExcel make the right call. However, you may wish to override it. Excel::Template will not do any form of validation on what you provide. You are assumed to know what you're doing.

    The legal types (taken from Spreadsheet::WriteExcel) are:

    • blank

    • formula

    • number

    • string

    • url

    q.v. Spreadsheet::WriteExcel for more info.

CHILDREN

FORMULA

EFFECTS

This will consume one column in the current row.

DEPENDENCIES

None

USAGE

  <cell text="Some Text Here"/>
  <cell>Some other text here</cell>

  <cell text="$Param2"/>
  <cell>Some <var name="Param"> text here</cell>

In the above example, four cells are written out. The first two have text hard-coded. The second two have variables. The third and fourth items have another thing that should be noted. If you have text where you want a variable in the middle, you have to use the latter form. Variables within parameters are the entire parameter's value.

Please see Spreadsheet::WriteExcel for what constitutes a legal formula.
