Import from MS Excel (.xls) worksheet using Database Wizard

It would be helpful to have the functionality to import from an Excel sheet to a
database within OpenOffice Base.

This would provide the user the opportunity to create custom forms and carry out
some querying on the data within the excel sheet more efficiently (e.g. using
SQL and designated queries).

The excel sheet can include OLE embedded objects (e.g. MS Word  2003 documents,
or .jpg's) as contents of the cell, which would require to be imported along
with the other fields.

Currently OpenOffice uses OpenOffice calc to read MS Excel sheets when using the
Database Wizard.
