Where could I get the correct sintaxe to use Excel or MsOffice.

For example, the below command could not be use directly in Delphi.
    ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1, Preview:=True, Collate:= _

Thanks

Hi,
   I have done a fair bit of this stuff in Excel with D3. I used a couple of things the first was the help in Excel as it shows the Visual Basic Help for Excel and the format is almost identical to Delphi. The other way is to import the type libraries and have a look the the functions in there. I tended to use the Visual Basic Help file as it displayed examples as well.

Regards,
 
 WESTY :)
