    Hello, I develop an application for IPAD and I will want to retrieve xml data located on IPAD from a Windows computer via a exel file xls.

    If it is not possible to xls file updater, it is possible to copy the xml file on the Windows computer via a script?

    The computers are on the same network.

    Thank you in advance.

    Create an Windows service that listens on a specific port for communication and make it able to receive the xml and either store it in memory, dump it to disk or you can interop excel (or COM instance it) and then create the xls file directly from the service. Then just have the app on the iPad publish the xml to the listening service.

    If the process needs to be initiated from Excel you can either make the service act as both a listening server or a dual service which can both listen and then communicate with Excel either as a COM objected in VBA or via an XLL bridge as an add-in. You can also create a separate the service and the Excel communication component (I'd recommend this route instead of the joint one).
