Reference an excel cell from an xml file

P: n/a
I have an xml file, and within it, I would like to reference the value
of the cell of an excel file. Is that possible? If so please provide
me with an example. Thanks.

Whether it's possible depends on whether the tool which is processing
your XML file has any clue of how to interpret your request for that
cell value. It's just a Simple Matter Of Programming...

If you don't have control over that tool, and/or the ability to plug
extensions into it (which is how I'd attempt this in XSLT, if I really
had to do it there), the simple answer is "no".

Remember, XML is just structured data. Any behaviors beyond that are
defined by the tools that process the XML.
