When I do this, Excel opens up, but it opens up without a workbook. If I open a file manually (via Excel's GUI), then the ActiveWorkbook is populated.

I don't know the Excel API, but if excel.workbooks.open("Foo.xls") is supposed to open a workbook in the Excel instance, then you've found a bug. Excel.workbooks.open is being overridden by Ruby's Kernel#open method.

If this is the case, can you open a bug at http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?func=browse&group_id=4359&atid=16798 and assign it to Tomas?

Thanks,
JD
