It is as easy as VB with Visual C++ 5.0. Look into the Visual C++ 5.0 documentation: Visual C++\Visual C++ Programmer's Guide\Adding Program Functionality\Overviews\Compiler COM Support: Overview. And the Visual C++ Compiler COM Support Samples, especially "COMEXCEL: Demonstrates an Automation Client Application with Compiler COM Support".

"COMEXCEL is a stand-alone Automation (formerly OLE Automation) client. It creates a new Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and generates a pie chart of the data stored on that spreadsheet. This sample works only with Microsoft Excel for Windows 95 version 7.0 or later, which exposes the dispinterfaces. It does not work with any previous versions of Microsoft Excel.

There is a Visual Basic project that controls the server in a way analogous to the COM code in Visual C++. You can compare the Visual Basic code with the code of this sample to see the similarities. You can use Visual Basic-specific object model documentation to write COM controllers in Visual C++.

To run this sample, you must edit the path to XL5EN32.OLB file in the source code.

This sample demonstrates the following keywords:

dispinterface; #import; _com_ptr_t; _variant_t; _bstr_t; _com_error."
