Dear Knut,

This is really more a limitation than a bug. Like most of the dialogs in the Rcmdr, the dialog to read Excel files uses existing facilities in R and R packages. I'll see whether it's possible to add an option to read a data set without variable names. The obvious workaround is to add a row of variable names to the spreadsheet.
