Right now I'm trying to grab data from an Excel spreadsheet and import them into a Max patcher. Basically, I want to be able to grab a number (the data will always be number values, never text) from any given cell in the spreadsheet, and put that number into Max.
After searching through the forums here, I know that I can save an Excel file as a .csv file for Max to read as text (https://cycling74.com/forums/midi-from-excel).
But after saving my .csv file, I don't know what to do with it! Do I write the file into a coll object or something?
Sorry if this is a basic question...I'm rather new at Max.
