The dmmXLS Xtra is designed to allow you to work with Microsoft Excel files in Macromedia Director. One big advantage of dmmXLS is that you do not need to have Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Jet Provider or any other programs installed on your computer. The library works standalone, making it ideal for CD-ROM applications. The xtra works with the following versions of Excel: 2.1, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 95, 97, 2000, 2003. It also allows access to worksheets and formulae.

The main advantage of using xls files in multimedia applications is the ability to incorporate existing spreadsheet data dynamically into Director projects. DmmXLS allows developers to separate spreadsheet construction and program design. As the xtra is standalone it makes it an ideal choice for CD-ROM applications.

The library supports
• Director 8, 9, 10, 11, 11.5
• Authorware 6 and later
