Name of contribution: exceltex
Author's name: Hans-Peter Doerr
Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/exceltex
Summary description: accessing Excel files from LaTeX
License type: gpl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
Exceltex is a small LaTeX package combined with a helper program written 
in Perl, which makes it easy to include tabulars and cells from Excel 
files in LaTeX documents.

Exceltex' intention is it to provide a "do it once and forget"
solution for accessing data from spreadsheet files. You don't need to
sync data in LaTeX with the Spreadsheet anymore (or even copy each
cell by hand - uhhhh), except that you have to press the "save" button
of your spreadsheet application before running exceltex :)
