Using : \newgeometry{left=0pt,top=0pt,bottom=0pt,includehead} is not too
bad, but not perfect.

Please find attached a short view of my document + the .xls file to
As you will see, 
1- the header is distorted on page 3
2- the .xls feet width but not height. Must be a ratio issue 
3- page 3 is not numbered.

Thank you for your help.
