Use Excel as an out-of-process OLE object to open the spreadsheet then examine the data within it.

You can use ODBC. At first you should make ODBC data source. Than you can use CRecordset and CRecordView classes. If it is a new application the AppWizard can help you (turn on Database view with or without file support).

Thanx.
But if i use the CDatabase::Open command like this-->
      CDatabase *pDB = new CDatabase;
      pDB->Open("D:\\test\\test.xls" , FALSE , FALSE , "ODBC;Excel 5.0;");
It's opening up the DSN dialog box and asking for the DSN.  But i want it completely automated and the i may have to open different spreadsheets each time this program is called.

I'm not quite sure I understand your explanation correct. So there are two variants below:

1. If you need to work with a specific worksheet you should register an appropriate Data Source and make something like this:

          pDB->OpenEx("DSN=MyRegisteredSource");

If DSN is correct an additional dialog will not appear.

2. If you want to choose different worksheets use this way (sure, ODBC Excel driver must be installed):

          pDB->OpenEx("DSN=Excel Files;");

In this case dialog "Select Worksheet" appears and you can choose necessary one .
