Is there easy way of to get access to *.xls files.
To particular cells in sheets.
I need to read some data from spreadsheet straight to my program.
Thanks in advance.

Under linux there are catdoc tools that can transform xls files into CSV (plain text, comma-separeted-values) which are easily parsable. No idea how to access such stuff under windows but I'd guess there should be a more elegant way there, at least if excel is installed on the machine that runs your program. Sorry if this doesn't help you ;) Henning -- GPG Public Key: http://pgpkeys.pca.dfn.de/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x30C7FC378DB14BE5

As you can access COM objects from D, you could use Automation or whatever they call it now.

Try these (I'm not a COM developer, but these might get you started):

adaptation should be possible, if a little tricky)

Wow! That example really shows the simplifications possible with auto! Looking up those type chains alone would have taken half an hour! I'm really amazed! Best Regards Ingo Oeser
