three ways of doing this, AFAIK:

1) save Excel data as tab-delimited values in a .txt file and please see
?read.table (you will need to set 'sep="\t"')
2) check the xlsReadWrite package out, very handy!
3) see the R-DCOM server and related software by Bayer and Neuwirth, but
this is overkill as their package is much more than a reading interface.
It can do that as well, anyway.

Solution 2) is definitely the quickest.

Hello to all,
How can I make R read the data from an Excel sheet?
