I know how to read Excel files into Mathematica.  I am trying find a way to
read data from a specific cell in an "open" excel spreadsheet.  The basic
problem is to make a change to a cell in excel, and then have a trigger in
Mathematica kick off code to read that cell into Mathematica.  I'm not too
concerned on how to trigger the action, and really only need help on how to
code the hook into an open excel spreadsheet to fetch the data from the
excel cell.

 

Does anyone know of a code example of how to do this.

 

Anyone's help on this is greatly appreciated.
