Be sure you have read the FAQ info at 

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/newexcel.html

although I understand you are looking for more.

I use Stat/Transfer routinely to create Stata datasets from Excel
spreadsheets, or to create spreadsheets for email from Stata datasets.
It works quite nicely. I also find the dialog version of common Stata
commands useful when dealing with people who are not very conversant
with Stata syntax.

SAS introduced SAS Integration Technologies a few years ago, and I have 
had success in creating excel application that can "talk" to SAS in an 
appreciable way. I like the fact I can create a very simple front-end 
(excel) to complicated programs. This gives the user a front-end that is

easily recognizable and common.

Being that I worked for a STATA owner for almost 5 years (Hi, to all WC 
people who are reading) I am an extreme advocate for STATA. Is there a 
way of doing a similar thing with STATA? I would love to bring STATA's 
superior everything to the table.

Thanks
