Sorry if I misled you here, instead of using MS Excel to enter customer
data into binary .xls format, we are using XML editors to put
the info into .xml files.

The closest we've come to automating the process is some Java code
that converts .csv files to .xml

This is kind of off-topic for this list though, can you email me
privately if you want pointers to XML editors that use stylesheets
and such?
