vrf Reading Excel range into VEE

Question asked by gregwale on May 8, 2003
Hi Warren,
FYI My product Vxl uses the formula method to retrieve up to 2D arrays from
Excel also, but it sounds like you got that taken care of already. It also
has a way to retrieve the results of a calculation in a cell for a single
cell if you are interested in how, let me know.
Best regards,
Greg Wale
