A new package has just been installed at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your favorite mirror. Thanks again, Jim Hefferon ====================================================================== The following information was provided by the package's contributor. Name of contribution: exceltex Author's name: Hans-Peter Doerr Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/exceltex Summary description: accessing Excel files from LaTeX License type: gpl Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
Exceltex is a small LaTeX package combined with a helper program written in Perl, which makes it easy to include tabulars and cells from Excel files in LaTeX documents. Exceltex' intention is it to provide a "do it once and forget" solution for accessing data from spreadsheet files. You don't need to sync data in LaTeX with the Spreadsheet anymore (or even copy each cell by hand - uhhhh), except that you have to press the "save" button of your spreadsheet application before running exceltex :)

Exceltex – Get data from Excel files into

Exceltex is a package combined with a helper program written in Perl. It provides an easy to use yet powerfull and flexible way to get data from Spreadsheets into .

In contrast to other solutions, exceltex does not seek to make the creation of tables in easier, but to get data from Spreadsheets into as easily as possible.

The Excel (TM) file format only acts as an interface between the spreadsheet application and exceltex beacause it is easily accessible (via the Spreadsheet::ParseExcel Perl module) and because most spreadsheet applications are able to read and write Excel files.
