It's only possible to read text files with read.table. (Even text-like
connections are buffered to a textConnection.)
It is possible to write code to do this, so if anyone wants to
To read parts of Excel files I would recommend RODBC: you don't need
Excel itself as Windows ODBC has a text driver for .xls files.

Please upgrade to 1.2.1.
