Depends what you're borrowing/importing and what sort of licensing/copyright model the owner holds.

I would say you're fine if there's API's available that allow you to import said file into another program which you've written. I believe MS Office extensions are fairly well supported by .NET and VB for example.

If you're decompiling a file though to extract data from it, then I'd say that's illegal.
