Subject: XLSREAD with MATLAB R2009b error


I have already saved the folder containing my excel file (file->set path->C:\Users\vanessa\Desktop\Data_ implementazione->add)

But when I try to use XLSREAD:
>> u=xlsread('C:\Users\vanessa\Desktop\Data_ implementazione\DATA_291212','Bid - Ask Prices 2002_D','B10:GS2712');

I got this error message:

??? Error using ==> xlsread at 219
XLSREAD unable to open file C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\Data_ implementazione\DATA_291212.
File C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\Data_ implementazione\DATA_291212.xls not found.

I tried to see whether it read the file and error messages again:

>> [type, sheets] = xlsfinfo('DATA_291212.xls')

??? Error using ==> validpath at 42
File C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\Data_ implementazione\DATA_291212.xls not found.

Error in ==> xlsfinfo at 40
filename = validpath(filename,'.xls');

Could you please help me in figuring this out?
I am new in MATLAB, so please give me simple answers...

Thanks for your help
