LibXL is a nice little inexpensive library that allows you to read and create excel files without actually having a copy of excel.
the library is available as a C++ library and a dot net library but for DataFlex there is no direct way of using LibXL.
We built a simple COM Interop wrapper for LibXL that allows you to use LibXL from within DataFlex
We are making this library available freely to DataFlex Developers.

Please send an email to email@example.com if you are interested in a copy of the library
