I have a document library where a bunch of Excel files all in the same format, and I want to be able to write a script or a web service that will read in each file, then iterate through certain rows and columns and extract data.  Is this possible?   I have visual studio 2008 standard and use sharepoint wss 3.0

You'd have to write a console application using the Sharepoint API (that can only run on the Sharepoint server) to do this.  Download the WSS SDK for more information.

You could try using a console application that uses the web service to access the list but it's slow and might not have all the features you need.
