VBS to read binary data

Good afternoon experts I am being tasked to create a Vb Script to read binary data and then export it to Excel.  Is there a code out there or a function that will allow me to do this?  

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thank you

Since it is binary data, how do you want to format or convert it to then export to Excel?  Can you provide a sample of the data file and any processing logic that is needed?

Thank you, Rob, I have been trying the function with no success. I guess there is no easy way to do this?

VBScript isn't really suited to reading binary data, but maybe if you provide more information about what data you want to read, and what you want to do with it (since putting it into Excel would result in text being non-binary), we may be able to help more.
