    I assume this is a trick question, which does not involve using say Excel to read its native file format...
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    He means use Excel to do what you want. Load the file then print it to a file (makes a .prn) instead of to a printer.

    Or you can print it directly to the printer. Assuming you have loaded the drivers for the printer onto your PC.

    AFAIK, prn files are totally denpendant on the printer and driver

    If you want to print an excel file then simply use automation via C++, VB or scripting to open an excel application, open the workbook andsend it to the printer you want
