Did you get my previous reply from a week ago?  Here it is again:


Uh, does "local" mean the server hard disk, or the client?  If it's the server,
you can use the filesystem functions that have always been available to you.
If it's the client, you can't do it with PHP.

If you'd like to read Microsoft files, like Access or Excel, then you should
use the COM extension to PHP to open and interface with those files.
