    XML Scenarios (Excel 2003/SP2)

    I've been asked to teach a class that includes a section on Excel XML files (Import, Export. etc)

    This is all well and good - but my problem is, I think its' completely useless. I like to have sense that what I'm teaching is a useful technique that will solve a problem.
    So I'm asking loungers, do you have (or had) a scenario where using Excel's XML features were useful to you, solved a problem etc.

    TIA

    A nice example could be to import a web site's rss feed into Excel. But that is just about it I guess as far as the average Joe is concerned.
    If you're a developer that might be an entirely different story. Web services are all returning XML.
