Check this article http://www.codeguru.com/misc/excel_automation.shtml
So if you know how to accomplish your task using VBA - the article will help. If not the easiest way can be to record macro - do what you need (e.g. to add empty cells) and then to use code for recorded macro

Sorry, but it does not solve my problem at all.
By adding rows or columns, I mean "INSERTING" rows in an existing worksheet, between 2 existing filled rows...
Do you know the way to insert rows in Excel, via automation with MsVC++ ???

Have you tryed the Insert Method for a range object...as in...

LPDISPATCH lpDisp;
Range range;  
lpDisp = sheet.GetRange(COleVariant(cell), COleVariant(cell));
ASSERT(lpDisp);
range.AttachDispatch(lpDisp);
range.Insert(xlShiftToRight);

Where could I find all the constants used in Excel, like xlVAlign, xlShiftToRight, etc...
Do you know a document which enumerates all these constants?
