hi ihave aproblem with the servers component in delphi the procedure below should open excel97 but it doesn't do
so,i'm running excel2000.  
{ No need to start Excel ourselves, since the ExcelApplication's AutoConnect
    property is True }
  lcid := GetUserDefaultLCID;
  ExcelApplication1.Visible[lcid]:=True;

  { Create a new workbook }
  { The TOleEnum cast in the next line just prevents compiler range warnings }
  WkBk.ConnectTo(ExcelApplication1.Workbooks.Add(TOleEnum(xlWBATWorksheet), lcid));
  WS.ConnectTo(WkBk.Worksheets[1] as _Worksheet);
  WS.Name := 'Data';
  EnterData;
end;
the error message is(old format or invalid type library)

Try this:
LCID:=LOCALE_USER_DEFAULT
FExcelApplication.ConnectKind:=ckNewInstance;
FExcelApplication.Connect;
FExcelWorkbook.ConnectTo(FExcelApplication.Workbooks.Add(TOleEnum(xlWBATWorksheet),LCID));
FExcelWorksheet.ConnectTo(FExcelWorkbook.Worksheets[1] as _Worksheet)
.
.
.
FExcelWorksheet.Name:='name';
.
.
FExcelApplication.Visible[LCID]:=True/False;
FExcelApplication.ScreenUpdateing[LCID]:=True/False;
FExcelApplication.displayAlerts[LCID]:=True/False;
where FExcelApplication is instance of TExcelApplication
and FExcelWorkbook is instance of TExcelWorkbook
and FExcelWorksheet is instance of TExcelWorksheet
