I contacted the company in question,
and they said they want an Excel file,
and only gave a Word doc as an example
because they thought people would find it easier to read.
Incidentally, the "project" is to send insurance forms for a school with
each pupil listed (with date of birth, etc).
I'd love a little Java screen to put in the data.
Does anyone know of such a thing?
Surely it would be more interesting (and useful) than all these sed
Perl has a good module to write excell stuff
I use it quite a lot (you can format as you like...)
