Hello, friends:
I have some .xls files.
I want to get the value of specific cell, F1 (for example) of all the files and print the results as .csv, .txt. or .gnumeric.
Could it be posible with scripts?

Likely you could use an awk script, see man awk. However, I think gnumeric may be able to import your files to work on.

Thank you, Fatmac!
I read the manual and the page:

and you really answer my question! Grin
