That's not really what the Test:: modules are for.  They are for
verifying that a module does what it is supposed to do.  For your
purposes as described, I would put "or die ..." after a lot of the parse points
and invariants in the spreadsheets, and wrap each page-parsing event
in eval{...} and ignore and report when the parsing fails.

things like

    ($cbnum) = $shape =~ /Check Box (\d+)/i or die "NO CHECK BOX FOUND";
