Did anyone write a notebook to read native Excel files in Mathematica?
(*.xls under Windows)

So far I have always forced the users to save the excel files as text
files. It works fine, except it requires an extra step and therefore an
extra opportunity for a human error.

I have used Mathlink for Excel in the past and I do not want to use it
for solving this since the whole point of it is to not require
mathematica on those user machines.
