"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A good place to start would be to visit this "File Formats" site.  I'm sure you'll find the necessary information for reading Excel spreadsheets.

Do you want to be able to read an Excel file, or actually read from Excel if it is running?  If it's running, you can use DDE to request information from it.
Try File->open and select the file you wish to "read from Excel"  Excel with then "read" in this file.

Using the mouse highlight the columns you wish to ignore. Then hit the delete key.

Click ok.

BOOM!  Problem solved, tho' it sure doesn't seem to be a c question.
