Hi all,
I wan't to display a *string* in an Excel cell, using MFC OLE
Automation.
When I use this kind of string "david", "A7.1", all is fine.

But when I want to display those kind of strings:  "1.20", "1.55",
"0.77" Excel translates them automatically in integers, and displays
these string in "1,20", "1,55", "0,77" (the dot is translated in
comma)... (I am using a French version of Excel)

At this time I use the following way to send datas to excel:
CString strText="1.20";
LPDISPATCH lpDisp;
 lpDisp=sheet.GetRange(COleVariant("A1"), COleVariant("A1")); // Select
the A1 cell
 ASSERT(lpDisp);
 range.AttachDispatch(lpDisp);
 range.SetValue(COleVariant(strText)); // <--- Excel display  1,20 !!!

How can I Force Excel to write a STRING to a specific cell ? And solve this problem!

Thanks for all, it's urgent!

David.

Try using this line for your string definition instead (where a single quote immediately follows the first double quote)


CString strText="'1.20";
