This is example of how to use previous unit to copy data from your Query to excel sheet.

procedure TForm1.BitBtn1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
 i: Integer;
 Obj: OleVariant;
begin
 Obj:= ExcelCreate('Grid');
 Query1.DisableControls;
 Query1.First;
 for i:= 0 to Query1.Fields.Count - 1 do
   ExcelPut(Obj, 'Grid', 1, i + 1, Query1.Fields[i].FieldName, '', 0, clBlue, [fsBold]);
 with Query1 do
 while not Eof do
 begin
   for i:= 0 to Fields.Count - 1 do
     ExcelPut(Obj, 'Grid', RecNo + 1, i + 1, Fields[i].AsString);
   Next;
 end;
 Query1.EnableControls;
end;

Hi Motaz

Thanks for the code. I tried in my program. It prints only the query fields in the excel sheet not the query records. Am I doing anything wrong. Suggestion most welcome please
