xl2latex: Excel table to LaTeX tabular converter

Works only with Excel97 (and hopefully above, you never know what Microsoft does)
For color, package "colortbl" is needed (put \usepackage{colortbl} in preamble)

Ideas taken from Excel-To-Latex by Joachim Marder

Import xl2latex.bas in Visual Basic and save as xl2latex.xls (or any other filename).

To do so: open a new file or a file with all your macros
          Extras->Macro->Visual Basic-Editor
          then in Visual Basic: File->File import
          close Visual Basic
          save the file (File->Save As or File->Save, what you want)
          close the file
          now you should have a new button "LaTeX export" in your "LaTeX" toolbar

Select the area you want to expert and press the "Export LaTeX" button, you will
be prompted for a file name.

For further notes look inside the macro.

One note to the license and distribution:
It is not forbidden to distribute xl2latex as an Excel file (.xls), but be 
aware that it is a danger to open foreign files with macros inside, they can
potentially contain viruses. And I will never distribute it in an other form
than plain basic (.bas).
