How can I get VB to get data directly from an Excel spreadsheet?  Right now, I'm converting the Excel file to CSV, then making it a text file, then using INPUT AS to get it into the VB program.

There's gotta be a way to do this directly, with no conversions needed, but how?  (Note I'm using VB 5.0 Pro)
