Default Reading MS Excel Data in STAR-CCM+ using a Macro

Hello All,

I currently have a spreadsheet that automatically generates the size and position of several volume shapes that will be used for several CFD studies. Rather than add every volume shape manually, I would like to create a macro in STAR-CCM+ that reads the data from MS Excel and then automatically creates my volume shapes. I am confident I can figure out how to write the macro to create the volume shapes on my own; however, I can't seem to find out what the command is (if one exists) for reading an Excel file. For those of you who have used Matlab, I am looking for the STAR-CCM+ equivalent to the "xlsread()" command. If this is possible in STAR-CCM+ please let me know.
