Try this:

  ExcelApplication1.Connect;

  ExcelApplication1.Connect;
  try
    ExcelApplication1.Workbooks.Open('C:\Book1.xls',
      EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam,
      EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam, EmptyParam,
      EmptyParam, EmptyParam, 0);
    ExcelApplication1.Visible[0] := true;
//   ExcelWorkSheet1.ConnectTo(ExcelApplication1.Sheets[1] As _WorkSheet) ;
  except
    ShowMessage('Oupss !');
  end;

What you had appears to make the connection but there is no feedback to let you know this.
