Hi kingfishpjd,

To convert the file directly from mht to xls , you can use a simple tool like (All Office Converter ),
another idea , you can use an Excel.Application activex object to open the
mht and save as xls. check out MSDN 
Another idea with money is : (SpotOn) Systems provides a solution to automatically convert mht files to Native XLS and is transparent to the Cognos users. For more information you can visit
