Hi, I have some data that I'd like to write in an Excel spreadsheet directly from my VB program.

Can somebody give me some sample code to add the text in a cell for example?

Dim app As Excel.Application
'Create instance of Excel object.
Set app = New Excel.Application
'Make app visible so you can see what happens.
app.Application.Visible = True

'Open an existing workbook.
app.Workbooks.Open app.Path & "\" & "MyWorkbook.xls"

'Select a sheet.

'Select a cell.

'Enter some data.
app.Application.ActiveCell.Value = "Whatever you want."

'Save the workbook.

'Or save as a different workbook.
