How can I create a graph & execute Excel from a non- MS environme

I would like to set up an application that can be run from Unix or another 
operating system that can be used to display a graph in Excel.(maybe a perl 
script, or something?)  I can create a csv file from the data coming from a 
non-microsoft environment.  I would like to be able to then run a unix system 
command, or a command that can be executed from the "run" line from MS Start 
menu that would use this data to open Excel and display the data as a chart.

This may not help much, but I vaguely remember seeing an article abou
an Excel clone written for Linux, which looked identical in almos
every respect (as far as I could tell from the screenshots).

It WASN'T called Excel though (obviously) but it could open .xls file
and I'm sure displaying charts is one of the things it would be able t
do easily.

If you can find it in a search (maybe try "Linux Excel clone"?, i
might be the best thing you can get.  I don't think it would b
possible to replicate a large chunk of Excel functionality in a singl
command line, though

Hi All I have a macro that copies a worksheet in the active workbook and puts it into a new workbook - then formats it and deletes any buttons on the worksheet.

Autonumber created.. problems in the future?
