Summary: spreadsheetReadBinary() function poorly namedSee discussion / confusion here:{267a8bea-8d25-435c-a533-6c830dd686ca}&topid={f2e136bd-bf17-4f77-aa29-4e69df5594a9}&tp=1The name of this function is not really representive of its functionality.  The usage of the word "read" in it implies - to me - some file operations, like reading a spreadsheet file.  In reality it's for converting a spreadsheet object into binary to facililitate WRITING it to file.Tom Chiverton suggested "spreadSheetToBinary" which sounds about right to me.  Then again, perhaps this functionality is just the remit of toBinary(), and that should be adjusted to work with spreadsheet objects.  I am indeed loath to add even MORE functions to the vast array of existing spreadsheetBlah() functions we've already got.-- Adam
