There is also a read.xls command in package gdata, it seems that it uses
a perl script called 'xls2csv'. I've have no idea how good this is,
never tried it.

Btw, xlsReadWrite is Windows-only, so you can use it only if 
you use windows.


ps. Corinna, to be honest, i've no idea what kind online help you've
read, there is plenty. Next time try to be more specific please.
