I am not aware of such direct function.

A trick that I find quite useful is the possibility to copy data from Excel 
directly into Scilab via the Windows clipboard.
See ones example below.

// First copy an Excel data range to clipboard then run Scilab commands:
str = clipboard("paste");
M = evstr(strsplit(str,ascii(10)));

Subject: [Scilab-users] Function to read Excel xlsx file into SCILAB

Dear SCILAB users,

is there a direct function available in SCILAB to read an Excel .xlsx file 
(Excel 2007 or later) into SCILAB.
I know I could open it in Excel and use the SaveAs menu to first convert it to 
.xls file, but a direct SCILAB function would be faster when handling many 
Thank you very much.
God bless you.
