Exceltex not printing cell

Postby NiallNixon » Thu Oct 20, 2016 2:30 pm

Hi Guys,

I've been trying to get the package exceltex (https://www.ctan.org/pkg/exceltex?lang=en) to work and I'm almost there but the final step is not working. The idea is to get a value from a certain cell and print it in the file.

The script uses a perl script (I have Strawberry Perl installed) called excelperl which looks up a certain cell value in the xls file and saves it as a variable in a file in the folder all-excltx. Now if I look in here, it has retrieved the value of the cell (so the perl script works!) but for some reason my pdf is not showing the value (just empty space). I'm running latex, then exceltex and then latex again.

Here's an example of my code:
  1. \documentclass{article}
  2. \usepackage{exceltex}
  3.  
  4. \begin{document}
  5. bla \newline
  6.  
  7. input cell: \inccell{list.xls!Sheet1!C3}
  8.  
  9. \end{document}


Thanks for any tips in advance!
Niall
