> read from an application program like Microsoft excel
Do you mean this?

Or do you mean read from "excel format" .xls files, and print that?

Get ready for a long reading session.

I'd like to thank you for the attempt but the thing is that the c program must read the computations from this application program i.e. the excel program and this c program should print the output on screen
thanks alot

If you're thinking of rummaging around in the address space of another process to see what it is up to - good luck!

sounds like a big project.

show us what you've done so far.

I have done some bit of the introduction but my main worry is joining the application and c program. that is what i've failed to do

personally, this sounds like a ridiculously hard task for little to no benefit.

i'm not sure why you're even wanting to do what you describe.

i'm not even sure if it can be done.
