You bring up an interesting point.  I was thinking about using an import for
the delimted file but ws unsure about the ability to dynamically create a
table from the file.  Is this possible?

As for the Excel files I was going to use POI to read the data.  I don't
know of an import that will import an Excel sheet from an Excel file.  Do
you know of one?
