I tried the program and it really work well. However, I hit a problem that the excel file may contain some double byte character - Chinese words and after using the function, I found those words become strange characters. Could you give me some advice on this? Thanks in advance for your kind help.

I would say that you have not set the Locale or Codepage in the page that uses this class.
For example these are the settings for Traditional Chinese:
Session.CodePage = 950
Session.LCID = &H0404
I use this code with Simplied/ Tradional Chinese, Japanese and Korean without a problem.

Hello,
Your code has been a great help. It works fine when reading in excel files. I try to open an excel file for writing and use the attribute forWriting when opening worksheet. The problem is if the excel file does not exist then it gives me error message saying it was unable to open the tab or worksheet. Have you used this source to actually write an excel file? Any pointers on how to write .xls file would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Previously you had to open an existing spreadsheet for writing. I have just added a new method called NewSpreadsheet to create a new workbook. See readme/demo for more about this.
