Subject Re: seemlessly exporting to and importing from MS excel

This question does not really concern cocoon IMO.

I came accross a few odbc plugins for excel a few years ago, they 
basically allowed you to retrieve database metadata and query tables etc 
all via the vba api. Some of them were even offering db-aware widgets 
and stuff IIRC
