Sorry for appending an unrelated conversation, just lazyness on my side.
About the post topic, I did not really know how to name it, but since I
was under the impression that a more complete applescript dictionnary fr
R-OSX could achieve what I am loooking for, I chose to name it thus.

So, going back to the real topic, could you please elaborate on what
"application that support data sharing" means? Is this some COM-like
This would be of interest not only relating to Excel for OSX, but also
other sw, like OpenOffice or Numbers.
