Hi Ranchers,

I come across a requirement as follows in one of the proposed applications.
I have an Excel File, with some data. I want to read that data and construct an XML file and then use it for some purpose.

I would like to know which version of Excel supports such a compatibility with XML. Specifically, Does Excel 2000 support this?
Generating XML from Excel is mandatory.

Any idea in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
