Question: linking Maple with Excel

I have the following situation (related to the design of steel structures). Using Maple you compute for a given loading the minimum required section modulus (a cross-sectional property). With that value you enter the section data base (an EXCEL spreadsheet) find all candidate sections whose modulus equals or exceeds the minimum and select the correct one based on some criteria (e.g., weight which is also included in the spreadsheet). Right now this is done manually. Any way to have MAPLE do that for me?
