How is the Excel file getting to the mainframe?  Is it being created on a PC and then uploaded?  Or are you trying to create an Excel file on the mainframe??

What OS are you running on the mainframe?

Do you have a ftp server running on the mainframe?

net.data is ODBC cleint application just like Microsoft Excel.

if you have selected "Microsssssssoft Query" when installing excel you have option to import SQL data using ODBC.

Can we do that Query for Mainframe to Microsoft. This is basically downloading data to Excel from IBM Mainframe using net.data.

How is the data stored on the mainframe?

Using ODBC would only work if the data is in DBMS on the mainframe and you have the required drivers.

Again, what OS is running on the mainframe.

Another question is how is the data stored on the mainframe?  DB2, IDMS, flat file, VSAM or something else?

It deals with iSeries servers, but it should work the same interacting with z/OS.

So you think about ADO.NET  or something like that? Excel does not use that.
It actually uses ODBC down below. Some drivers do export ADO apis, rest can bridge thru ODBC.
