Thanks for creating  WriteXLS, Marc. Others should know that WriteXLS  
has the great advantage over *.csv writing, in that it lets you make  
multi-sheet XLS files. Need a vector of 16 dataframes written to 16  
worksheets in one workbook ... no problem, ... worked the first time  
(at least it did so once I realized I needed to follow the directions  
in the help page exactly as they were written :-).
