   RE: Re: [xml-dev] Excel sheet

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Did that in reverse for a Foxpro data base to Excel spreadsheet.  Used HTML tables.  Worked great.

From: Michael Champion [mailto:michael.champion@hotmail.com]

An API in what library? I suppose one could write a custom XmlReader (the Microsoft pull-model XML API) that would process an Excel binary and could be plugged into a DOM builder to get representation of the spreadsheet as  if it were XML.  I've never heard of such a thing, and anyway the Right Thing is to move Excel's native format to XML by default (which will happen in the next release, in case the original poster wasn't aware of that).


For the time being easiest thing to do would be to load the spreadsheet into Excel (or OO.o, or Corel, or whatever other products support both Excel binary format and XML) and save it as XML.
