I was recently involved in a project which required producing excel
files programmatically (this was from VB *spew*). I started off using
COM, but it turned out to be unreasonably slow for filling in all the
cells that we needed to do; so instead we output an XML spreadsheet.
It was much faster, and simpler in the end.
