Hi Josh and Prof. Ripley,

Thanks for the quick replies!

Sorry about the HTML email. It's the default for my yahoo account and forgot to switch.

The question was asked by a colleague of mine. After double-checking, yes, they are actually Excel files. Any idea on how to approach this?

Thanks!

...Tao
