Excel library subs
« on: May 31, 2011, 10:16:11 AM »
OK, before you yell at me I did try to search using "Excel" but you guys use the term "Excellent" WAY too much around here!  :-D

Does any one have a link or code for retrieving info in an excel spreadsheet via AutoLISP / VLisp?

Thank you for any help!!

Somewhat off topic, but I have to agree with jbuzbee.  This site is incredibly hard to search and have meaningful results.  Punctuation gets stripped out, and there's no way to search for a phrase that I can find.  Yesterday I wanted to look for      (command "text"      as a phrase.  103 pages of results were returned.  If I limit the search to the lisp and "show your stuff" forums it is still 51 pages.  The search function would be fine for most sites, but for a site that deals with programming languages it leaves a lot to be desired.  I also wish that there was a way to make the forum selections sticky instead of having search default to all forums.  

I don't mean for this to be taken as a complaint.  More a "wish list" suggestion.  This is a great site, and one that I've benefited from greatly.

I realize that Google search works, and I appreciate the syntax example since I've never quite figured out Google search syntax works.  Maybe its just me, but I prefer to use the search built-in to a web site when possible.

I always start here:
http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en
using the this exact wording or phrase: to narrow down the search, same as using quotes
