Convenient Data Exchange with Microsoft Excel.


Allows access to data in running instance of Microsoft Excel (e. g. 'xl[a1] = xl[b2]*3' and so on). Graphics can be transferred with 'xl[a1] = current.graphics()'. Additionally there are function for reading/writing 'Excel' files - 'xl.read.file'/'xl.save.file'. They are not fast but able to read/write '*.xlsb'-files and password-protected files. There is an Excel workbook with examples of calling R from Excel in the 'doc' folder. It tries to keep things as simple as possible - there are no needs in any additional installations besides R, only 'VBA' code in the Excel workbook. Microsoft Excel is required for this package.
