Bottles communicate with each other

I have Office XP installed in a Windows 98 bottle (it's set as the default bottle). I'm working on installing another app in a Windows XP bottle. The app in the XP bottle has an option to send data to Excel. Any chance of that working?

More than likely it would not work. Generally bottles do not communicate with each other or recognize that other bottles exist. Usually this is a positive point (in that, if something happens like a virus or a corrupted install only one bottle is damaged) but in some cases is not desired. At this time the best work around is to save the data you would like in Excel to your desktop and then open it into Excel manually.
