First of all write some short info about yourself and your programming
experience. After that:
If you have a Windows operating system - find a way to open an xls file
from your own program using MS Office (looks like COM must be used there)
or using Open/Libre Office.
If you have Linux operating system - find a way to open odt file from your
own program using Open/Libre Office.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
