Ken T.-- This link requires Excel.

Ken H. -- Intersting question. I don't believe this is possible unless you
hack the excel file. This requires extensive assembly language know-how and
a thorough understanding of the Portable Executable file structure.

With COM, you can create a spreadsheet in the background (i.e. without
showing the excel application), but this requires excel on the users machine.

I thought that may be the case. The one good thing is that it looks
fairly easy to do.

Thanks.
