There was an RPG TOOLS command that could be used in a CL program to convert
a file to something like a comma seperated file. What we did was modify the
program that created the spreadsheet data to output to a work file. Use the
cvtxxxxx command from RPGTOOLS and then FTP to the server where is could be
retrieved by the user. When the user double clicked on it, it opened into an
Excel spreadsheet. Offhand I don't know who offers RPG Tools. Possibly
someone else could supply that info. Hope this helps.
