Data from spreadsheet

I want to extract some data from an .XLS (tab separated file) Excel file. I was wondering what the simplest way to do this is. I want to be able to get the text from a specified location in a spreadsheet (such as [row 35, column E]) and then write it to a different location in another spreadsheet (such as [row 2, column B]). This is pretty useful functionality so I was hoping that someone had already made a simple implementation.
