micro 1500 vb code to achieve datalogs into excel

I need some help on writing the vb section of my project.  I would like to make a time-stamp in excel that would go out on a 485 network, and upload the internal data recorded inside the logs of a micrologix 1500 data logger.  I have all the other portions of the program done.  I can not figure out how to write the vb to go to each micro, and collect data.  Note:  This application does not need RsLinx.  The data stored in the datalog memory is different than standard PLC files.  It does not require linx.  AB has a progam that will go out and get the data.  The problem is they don't really want to help us finish the application.  Please help...
