Thanx. I managed to find one text file propagated throughout the web on SYLK
file layouts. An ancient plagiarism from Wang's (?) original documentation,
undoubtedly; cryptic, to be sure; complete, hardly. But comparing it with
the output from Excel should get me through. If I'm going to plow through
the trouble of creating a SYLK file you just know I'm going to also include
font and cell format specifications. I'm just not yet sure I have to specify
the number of rows (Y1 in your example above). If I can get away without
specifying it, and all indications so far are that I can unless the file is
to be used for MultiPlan input, the task becomes a little bit easier.
Otherwise I'll have to build an array of the output first, count the rows
and then build the SYLK file. Given the number of tables I have to traverse
and the data being changed in real time I can't afford the luxury of using
the current web page row count.
Thanx yet again. [and that rhythmic thumping you hear is nothing to fear; it
is only my head beating the desk to a pulp]
