I just uploaded the new version of RExcel to the incoming directory.

Here is part of the ReadMe:

R-Excel Interface, Version 0.73                                      


  This package contains an Excel Addin to use R from within Microsoft
  on Microsoft Windows platforms.


  Data-transfer both from R to the Excel and vice versa, currently
  supporting scalars (booleans, integers, doubles and strings) and
arrays of
  R can be called by executing macros "real time", and we also have
  worksheet functions calling R as part of Excels automatic

Bugs/unimplemented features:

  * COM server sometimes dies unexpectedly, then Excel has to be closed
    and restarted.

---------   ... Excel Addin and examples


  * Install the latest R release  (>= R 1.2.3)
  * Install the DCOM server for R (>= 0.99.0)
    Installing the R-(D)COM Interface is still a little bit tricky
    (not yet fully automatic), your really have to read 
    the instructions carefully.
