My Mathlink between Mma 2.2 and Excel 5 still works.
Between Mma 3.0 and Excel 5 does not.
Between Excel 7.0 for Win'95 and any Mma version doesn't either upto now.
Unless Wolfram came up with something new recently, this situation is somewhat
frustrating for those who bought first Mma 2.2 plus Mathlink, then upgraded
to Mma 3.0.
My hopes are on the forthcoming release of Mma 3.1. Just my hopes ...
