I am embedding an Excel 97 worksheet into my application (setting the class as Excel.Sheet.8). When I try and set a value in a cell using the follwing line :

OLE1.object.Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("R1C1").Value = 100

I get run-time error '1004'. If I use the A1 reference style it works but unfortunately I need to use the R1C1 style. I've tried various themes on the above line (like taking the quotes out etc) but none of them work. Excel help is of no particular use. Please help!!!

To use R1C1 style do the following:

OLE1.object.Worksheets("Sheet1").Range("B1").FormulaR1C1 = "100"
