you could try to access the excel file via ODBC if the only thing you need
to do is reading. It worked for me when I was working with Excel 95 (no COM)
and wanted to read in worksheets in python.

Here are some infos on excel datasources:

I could not access password-protected excel files, the fetchall() method did
not work, create/drop index, alter table did not work, table names are
like "[sheet1$]" (note the brackets and the dollar sign).

Just my 2Cents,
