Default How do I read data from excel?

I am writing a application for a the local watershed association. It is a native plant guide for them to distribute. Anyway, my goal is to make it so they can update the program without having to recompile. My solution for this is to use an excel file that they can store all the data, since all of folks there use excel on a daily basis.

The problem that I've run into is the question of how I tell my VBA to search the excel file and display data from specific cells, without using ADO.

I would appreciate any help I can get.
