This is Kushal. I am using Octave Version 4.0.0. My system configuration is Windows, OS7, 8 GB RAM with Intel Processor. 

I am trying to read data from an excel file into a variable. I installed the IO package from Octave forge using the command

pkg install -forge io

I downloaded the RAR file and placed it in the working directory. Then I wrote the install command. After few moments the RAR file disappeared from the directory. Then I wrote the following command 

a = xlsread('Test.xlsx'). I am getting an error which can be seen in the screenshot file that I attached to this email.

Can you please tell me where am I doing a mistake. I have manipulated excel sheets in Matlab previously but I want to switch to Octave as it is a freeware.

The Test.xlsx file has basic data of 1-9 in a 3 by 3 excel rows and columns. 

Please let me know if you need any more information from my side regarding this.

Thanks a lot.
