How to run VBScript tutorial
In order to run the tutorial create a file named Tutorial03.vbs containing previous code, open Command Prompt, change the directory to tutorial location using cd command and type:
>    cscript Tutorial03.vbs.

Overloaded methods
For methods with same name but different parameters, only the first method overload retains the original name. Subsequent overloads are uniquely renamed by appending to the method name '_2', '_3', etc (method, method_2, method_3), an integer that corresponds to the order of declaration that can be found in EasyXLS.h, a file that comes with EasyXLS installation.
