You can always go to the View|Object browser menu item, select the Excel library, select the sheet object and view what the available properties and methods are.  In this case I looked up Cells and saw that this is a method available to the Application object.  So, maybe you want to be doing CreateObject("Excel.Application")

I wrote this just for you !
In Project | References set a reference to Microosft Excel Object Library.

    Dim XLApp As New Excel.Application
    Dim XLWS As Worksheet
    Dim XLWB As Workbook
    Dim XLCellRange As Range

    XLApp.Application.Visible = True
    Set XLWB = XLApp.Workbooks.Add()
    Set XLWS = XLWB.Worksheets.Add()
    XLWS.Name = "Worksheet Name"
    XLWS.Columns("A:A").ColumnWidth = 25
    XLWS.Columns("B:B").ColumnWidth = 15
   
    With XLWS.Cells(1, 1)
        .Value = "A cell value"
        .Font.Size = 14
        .Font.Bold = True
    End With

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Try the following which uses late binding.

    'Dim XLApp As New Excel.Application
    Dim XLApp As Excel.Application
    Dim XLWS As Worksheet
    Dim XLWB As Workbook
    Dim XLCellRange As Range


    Set XLApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")

    XLApp.Application.Visible = True
    Set XLWB = XLApp.Workbooks.Add()
    Set XLWS = XLWB.Worksheets.Add()
    XLWS.Name = "Worksheet Name"
    XLWS.Columns("A:A").ColumnWidth = 25
    XLWS.Columns("B:B").ColumnWidth = 15
   
    With XLWS.Cells(1, 1)
        .Value = "PRODUCT SUMMARY SPREADSHEET"
        .Font.Size = 14
        .Font.Bold = True
    End With

Hey, everyone is just re-submitting (granted, a more detailed explanation of) my rejected answer!  Here's another thing you could try with your original code that might work.

change
ExcelSheet.Cells(1, 1).Value = "This is column A, row 1"

to
ExcelSheet.Application.Cells(1, 1).Value = "This is column A, row 1"

Your line:
   Set ExcelSheet = CreateObject("Excel.Sheet")
will create WorkSheet in Excel 7, but WorkBook in Excel 8.

You can replace your line with this 2 lines:
   Set ExcelBook = CreateObject("Excel.Sheet") ' this will create XLbook
   Set ExcelSheet = ExcelBook.Sheets(1)

Your second line works:
   ExcelSheet.Application.Visible = True
because Workbook also has Application property

but your third line won't work (Workbook doesn't have Cells)
