    Reading/Writing an Excel Spreadsheet?

    I'm decently sure there's no built-in operation for this, but is there a way to read & write to an excel spreadsheet? It probably uses some type of custom language for images and such, but there is a way to read the files, no? It makes things very easy to order, and it'd be nice to organize large amounts of data and at the same time, make it semi-legible.

    Well thanks for any input.

    You could also use DispHelper, after downloading go to the examples and one is called "excel" (or something like that).

    You can always save the data as tab delimited text. This is the most common method used for analyzing engineering data.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.
