Hi
i am so stuck!
i have a tab delimited txt file that i open using actxserver and want
to save it as an excel file!
i use the command
invoke(Workbook, 'SaveCopyAs', 'test.xls');
but what i get is a tab delimited file with an xls extension, i.e.
the format of the file is not really excel after saving! only the
extension changes!

what command should i use instead?

and do you know a reference for axtxserver command formats?

thanks a lot!
