When the user enters specific information onto my application I need that information to be sent to a specific cell in  Excel. How do I write the code fro this? I have been trying to find info on this type of problem for some time. I can get the worksheet to load and unload , even to print but I have no idea on the code to sent it to the required cell. Any answers?

Use the SendKeys to position the cursor in Excel. Send an F5 followed by the cell address and <Enter>.

Could you please give me an example... I tried this but it continues to place the information into the first cell.
Here is the code that I am using. Could you tell me what I am doing wrong?

SendKeys "C:\MSOffice\YO Book Sheet.xls~"
DoEvents
 AppActivate retval
SendKeys Text1.Text
Text1.Text = ""
DoEvents
AppActivate retval
SendKeys "{F5}"
DoEvents
AppActivate retval
SendKeys "($D$4)"
DoEvents
AppActivate retval
SendKeys "{Enter}", True
DoEvents
End Sub

Leave off the parens & $'s on ($D$4) - feed as D4...
