That's good.

A1:XFD1048576 is an enormous array......(1048576 rows X 16384 columns).
You can simply specify an empty string ('', two consecutive single or double

And I think you may not need to specify "oct", you can leave the last two
parameters altogether and it should just work.

I don't think so.

The unpack error points to a different problem. 
Can you make an .xlsx file with Excel with some random data or so and try to
1. Read it with Octave, using xlsread
2. Add another sheet to it with xlswrite?
