I have this code which I copyed straight from the help files

Private Sub Command1_Click()
' Declare an object variable to hold the object
' reference. Dim as Object causes late binding.
Dim ExcelSheet As Object

Set ExcelSheet = CreateObject("Excel.Sheet")
ExcelSheet.Application.Visible = True
' Place some text in the first cell of the sheet.
ExcelSheet.Cells(1, 1).Value = "This is column A, row 1"
' Save the sheet to C:\test.doc directory.
ExcelSheet.SaveAs "C:\temp\TEST1.xls"
' Close Excel with the Quit method on the Application object.
ExcelSheet.Application.Quit
' Release the object variable.
Set ExcelSheet = Nothing

End Sub

but when it gets to the line

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

I get the error message "Object doesn't support this message or property"

damienm,

The error is because this line...
  Set ExcelSheet = CreateObject("Excel.Sheet")
....creates a WORKBOOK and not a SHEET.

A Workbook does not have a Cells property. Therefore, this line generates an error:
  ExcelSheet.Cells(1, 1).Value = "This is column A, row 1"

Use this instead:
  ExcelSheet.Sheets(1).Cells(1, 1).Value = "This is column A, row 1"

Try changing the problem line to:

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

You can get help on the Excel Application object properties and methods by adding a reference to the Microsoft Excel Object Library in your project and using the object browser (press F2).

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.

Welcome to EE, skyblue! It's good to see that you are beginning to post solutions. Keep at it! You'll beat me next time...

It was nice of you to withdraw your answer when you noticed my post with the same solution.
