I ran a small test on xmlserializer and on a small file it performed 10
times worse then when I used the XMLDocument and deserialized the values
myself. Is the xmlserializer really that slow?
I'm expecting a file about 1 MB in length and if it's that slow on a 2 K
file then I can't phantom how it's going to behave on a 1 MB file.
Should I just skip the xmlserializer and XML Dom and go straight to
xmlreader and do the deserialization myself?

I thought I would create a workbook that contains 365 sheets

of daily numerical data.
However, if my workbook has 365 tabs, wouldn't that seem
a bit too clunky or ineffecient???
Does anybody have any design ideas for a single workbook
that would contain/operate on 365 sheets which could cover
