Why don't you use the TExcel component?
You can find it on the web.
Why reinventing the wheel if it already exists?

Thanks
I got the componment, but what it does is pump data to a excel spread via DDE. What I need to do is read a spread sheet from disk. What I have is a schedule done in excel thats on a server, also I have a job tracking software I wrote. What I want to do is read the data from the spread sheet via ODBC and display in my software(Job tracker) which is on another server.

So thanks anyway if you have any othe ideas it would be great.
thanks again Mike C
