I get a file exported from an AS400 into excel, but it exports as excel 2.1,
and all the dates come over as text, and I can't convert.  I have to save as
a tab delimited file, then import to excel (2003), which corrects the problem.

Is there a command line excel function to open a .txt file and then save as
excel without haveing to manually launch the application?
