I am struggling with Mathematica Links for Excel (MLE) - is it me or
does anyone else think this manual provided is an embarrassment to the
good folks at Wolfram?  It stinks.  I have used M-Code worksheet
successfully but when I wish to use FindMinimum Mathematica macro
within a worksheet I cannot enter successfully the "header" in the
right syntext nor can I enter the {x, x0} and {y, y0} for the two
variables I am tryiong to solve for.  The header is in a (f(x)- x0)^2
+ (f(y)- y0)^2 solving for minimum {x,x0} and {y,y0}.  I just cant get
it right..m...   Be grateful for any wiz to respond and if someone is
in NY NY with time on there hands this summer and know stochastic
calc, Mathematica, and Link for Excel absolutely cold you can likely
get a nice consulting assignment....
