Dear group:
 
This is a very basic import question.
I've got this Excel spreadsheet, and to miantain my data ordered I have stored it in a drive different from C. It is called seg, and saved in drive J, in a folder called ejstat, so:  J:/ejstat
 
However, when I want to import it into Mathematica (7 or 8) I run into problems. For example:
SetDirectory["J:"]
Import["ejstat\seg.xls", "XLS"]
 
does not work.
I've tried other alternatives, to no avail. The solution must be irritatingly simple...
Can somebody help me?
Thanks
Francisco
