"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could pull the data into a temporary table (or have a table permanently set up to work with the data), make the necessary updates, and push it back to the Excel file.  Or, you could use an Active-X script task.  How much formatting is there in the Excel file?  What kinds of updates would be made?
