File formats are a highly guarded Microsoft secret.  I'm sure if you ever got it, it would be very tough to deal with.

I suggest you save your excel worksheets as text files.  Click file, save as, down in the file type, choose CSV file and click save.  This will place commas betwwen each field and a return after each row.

You can even automate this with the macros.

Hello ElmerFud
  Thanks for your immediate reply.
But, problem is that, by knowing excel file name we have to read the data int some text file or buffer without save as CSV file type.
Any how thank you. Pls, reply if you find some solution..
