Treat excel as ole automation server not favorable for my situation.

One way may be the new OWC(Office Web Component) technology, but it had a lot of limit. For example, only support one sheet.

Any idea?

Thanks.

Choose OleContainer has one question, how can i access excel worksheet directly?

I want provide user a button to autofill excel sheet with some datasets.

For example:
  OleContainer1.CreateObjectFromFile('c:\test.xls',false);
  OleContainer1.DoVerb(ovSHOW);
  App := GetApplication(OleContainer1.OleObject);
  WorkBook := GetWorkBook(App);
  WorkSheet := GetWorkSheet(WorkBook);
  WorkSheet.Range(xxx) := xxx;

How can I do it if use OleContainer?

Thanks.
