> Is there any way to get Rev *on a Mac* to open an MS Excel document, 
created in Windows, and extract data?

1 way ...
the way i use is to launch an excel macro that pulls all the data from the 
spreadsheet and writes it out to text ... pretty easy if you can control your 
spreadsheets or there are some landmarks you can export with it

1 idea ...
see if the Office knock-off programs (Open OSXOffice, ThinkFree Office) or 
Excel reader utilities can be scripted to do the same thing or schmooze them 
into sharing the dataformat!
