    You have three options:

    1. Use the MS Office integration components which ship with BCB Pro and Enterprise (not standard)

    2. If you can find any other component for reading/writing Excel files written in C/C++, or shipped as a VCL, ActiveX or DLL component, you can use that.

    3. If you have been told to make your application open Excel files by your company, almost certainly what they mean are comma separated files (csv) - marketroids don't know the difference. These are much easier to work with as you can parse them with your own code easily. If you need to justify why you should work with csv files (rather than Excel per sa), you can say that csv files are compitible with all spreadsheet applications, not just Excel.
