Exceltex problems

Postby Bixentzo » Wed Jul 04, 2018 3:13 pm

Hi everyone !

I have a problem with ExcelTex...

It's a module that allows me to get data from some specifics cells in my excel document.

I do everything good in my doc :


I have compiled once with pdflatex, then once with exceltex then once more with pdflatex,
there is a folder myDocument-excltx which is created with one file by cell, and we can see cell's data in these files.

I get everything so, but I don't see anything of this in my final document... Maybe it's because I use Windows ?

Thanks you very much in advance

Hi Bixentzo,

welcome to the forum!

Yes, you are right: Exceltex requires a Unix-like operating system, such as Linux or Mac OS X. It would run on Windows if Cygwin is installed. It requires specifically Perl, perhaps installing ActivePerl would already help, but the official requirement on Windows I read is Cygwin.
