[Limdep Nlogit List] Reading Excel data file without variable names

 From the online help (under READ):

"But, worksheet files must be read with ;NAMES (no list is needed) in 
the command."

So reading-without-names apparently isn't possible. You could always 
dump the excel data to an ascii file and read it in that way: in 
which case names are automatically assigned.
