The basic idea is that it uses Excel as a front end and R as the background computational engine as an Excel plugin.  It has tools for transferring data automatically between Excel and R that may be easier for what you want (or not).  There are also mechanisms for putting R code in a cell, having the code run through R and the output put into other cells in the spreadsheet.

Thanks for the tip.  I have already started looking into the 
documentation for that alternative.  So far it looks interesting.
