I have a Batch file (run from icon on desktop) that is running an IBM DTF to and Excel spreadsheet (file type: ASCII TEXT, translate data: ASCII) and then I use start excel.exe and it opens my spreadsheet with the data. PROBLEM: How can I format the spreadsheet with headers and column fonts and colors, etc. and just load the data beginning in cell A2? I can manually run the same DTF through add-in feature to keep formatting but I need this completely automated.

Software/Hardware used:
excel 2007 / IBM iSeries Access 6.0
