Here's what I'd like to do, I just don't know if it can be done.

I'd like to display data from certain cells within an excel spreadsheet.

The data is being pulled from a web query within excel and refreshed every minute. Is there anything out there that would then allow me to display that data onto an lcd screen?

I have no programming skills. I'm hoping to do this within an lcd so it's a bit more affordable than purchasing an lcd monitor that has an s-video or vga input, Plus I'd only need to run one cable as I'd like to use the USB 634XE

Any thoughts or ideas?

Would it be possible to make a plugin that would extract certain cells from an XLS file and display them?

One possible problem I can see is that Excel locks its files whenever it is open.

Might have to approach it as a script in Excel that dumps cells to a text file, then a text file to display plugin.
