I updated the publish DLL and code to be incremental with available data:

Give it a try and let me know.


=== From the README:

To use the DLL with Excel, you need to register it.

Copy SpreadExcelRTD.dll somewhere on your executable path.

 From a command line, run:
  regsvr32.exe SpreadExcelRTD.dll
to register it and:
  regsvr32.exe /U SpreadExcelRTD.dll
to unregister it.

Then open RTDServerSample.xls in Excel and you should see the test topics.

You can use the spreadsheet in ExcelSpreadPub/dlltestspreadpub.xls
to generate events.
