Hi all,
Do you know how to easily exporting a formatted string to a cell in Excel97 via OLE?

By formatted string I mean:
- specified the Font used for the string: name, size, bold & italic
- color of the string (e.g. red, yellow, etc...)
E.g: sending to a specific cell of Excel the string "This is a test",
with font "Comics", Size 16, Bold, and in red color ?

TIA
David.

You will have to do it following way:
1. Get IDispatch of Excel to request latter interface which allows you to modify specific cell
2. Set text
3. Set font
