I know almost nothing about XML documents or how that document might include
the Excel formatting. I would suggest groups.google.com; I would suggest
using it to search for msxml.domdocument in the microsoft.public ... xml
groups. One hit I found was
which might have helpful info.
There are a bunch of English language microsoft.public ... xml groups,
On the main groups.google.com web page is a place to search for a group.
Enter something like the two words: microsoft xml to help you decide which
groups might be good candidates for crossposting your request. This returns
a nice list of group candidates, as well as some info on how frequently the
groups are used.
Use the search at msdn.microsoft.com, for something like: msxml.domdocument
reference, to find info that will be helpful in scripting the
msxml.domdocument object model.
