Assuming you have a bit of knowlegde about OLE,

To extract data from cells you need to connect to excel, get the active book or any open book, get the current sheet and then you can access the individual cell data.

//Open Excel Application
ExcelApp := CreateOleObject('Excel.Application');
ExcelApp.Visible := True;

//Open a workbook
XLNewBook := ExcelApp.WorkBooks.Open('C:\My Documents\WlsTemplate.xls');
//Get Active Workbook
XLNewBook := ExcelApp.ActiveWorkbook;

//Selecting a specific worksheet in the current workbook
XLActiveSheet := XLNewBook.WorkSheets[1];
//Selecting the active workbook
XLActiveSheet := XLNewBook.ActiveWorkSheet;

//Set the cell value in the current cell
XLActiveSheet.Cells[CurrentRow, CurrentColumn].Value := 'Hello workld';
//Get current cell value
MyString := XLActiveSheet.Cells[CurrentRow, CurrentColumn].Value

You can access any object in excel using this type of method.
eg Toolbars, Menus etc.

If you have the excel help installed you can get help on the objects avalible to you.
