[unixODBC-support] Accessing Excel from a Linux - based ODBC client via unixODBC

All,

I'm running an application on Ruby on Rails on a Linux box.  I am 
currently using unixODBC in conjunction with freeTDS to hit a SQL Server 
database.

What are my options for being able to access an Excel spreadsheet via 
ODBC?  I see the ODBC-ODBC bridge from Easysoft - would that be my only 
option.

I would need to set things up to be totally programmatic, including the 
configuration of the ODBC DSN.

Thanks,
Wes Gamble
