Convert "xls" file to "txt" file

Hi, I hope someone can help.

I need to convert an Excel spreadsheet to an ASCI text file, in order to 
import data into a datawindow. I want to try and avoid asking users to save 
their files as text files and there are issues surrounding the use of ODBC 
to link to Excel.

I am currently able to view my Excel data by way of an OLE object but if I 
try "Getdata", only the first 72 rows are imported to a string or blob and 
then subsequently to the datawindow.

So I am looking for an OLE function which will "save as" my file.

Help would be greatly appeciated.

Precedence of "where" ("of", "is", "will")?
Nobody on #perl6 today could answer this one. Is: Str | Int where { $_ } the same as: (Str | Int) where { $_ } or: Str | (Int where { $_ }) ? Followup questions, Mr. President: What kind of operators are "where", "of", "is", and "will"? Is there a reason that S03 doesn't list them?

Convert "BCC" to "To:"
I'm guessing the answer to this is no, but I thought I'd ask. Is there any way to set GWIA to convert a "BCC:" recipient to a "To:" recipient? (Each person would be it's own To: Address) The problem we are having is that we use BCC because we don't want people to see other customers email addresses. We have found that some Spam software is tagging the e-mail as spam because the customers name is not in the "To:" field. Your thoughts or comments would be appreciated. --Matt No there isn't. Nor should there be because the recipien...

"Link-", "Libs-" and "Import-" -entries in CB2010-project file
Hi. Could anyone explain to me, what the meaning of the different "link/lib/import"-entries in the project-file is? I'm confused.

And which one *is* the "Runtime package"-list?? <LinkPackageStatics></LinkPackageStatics> <LinkPackageImports></LinkPackageImports> <PackageImports></PackageImports> <AllPackageLibs></AllPackageLibs> Thanks a lot!
