"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.

Use OLE automation and Microsft Excel
objects. You have a lot of stuff and
examples for VB and for C++ in MSDN
which show how to control Microsoft
Excel. Try to find article
"Interacting with Microsoft Excel: A  Case Study in OLE Automation" with
code examples.
After you read the data from Excel file
you can easily produce input for you program.
