I'm using Delphi 6 and TExcelApplication and TExcelWorksheet.  I want to insert a line between two existing lines in an Excel file. ( Same thing as, in Excel, rigth-clicking and select "Insert". )
I can insert a new line at the end, but I want to insert between two line.  How to do that ?
Thanks.

Hi frdep,
for an example (where WS is your worksheet) you can do this to move the rows down and insert some text at row A3:

begin
WS.Range['A3','A3'].EntireRow.Insert(TOleEnum(xlShiftDown));
WS.Range['A3','A3'].Value := 'HELLO IM SOME INSERTED TEXT';
end;

hi,
i couldnt work out how to read the current format to save it in a var and reapply it after the insert but if you know it already you can do like so and either format the whole sheet the same or just format your newly inserted row:


Uses ActiveX;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  ExcelWorksheet1.ConnectTo(ExcelApplication1.ActiveSheet as _Worksheet);
  ExcelWorksheet1.Range['A2', 'A2'].EntireRow.Insert(TOleEnum(xlShiftDown));
  ExcelWorksheet1.Range['A2','A2'].Value := 'HELLO IM SOME INSERTED TEXT';
   // this will just format all cells in the sheet the same
  //  ExcelWorksheet1.Cells.Select;
  //  ExcelWorksheet1.Cells.Font.Name:='Arial Cyr';
  //  ExcelWorksheet1.Cells.Font.Color := clgreen;
  //  ExcelWorksheet1.cells.Font.Size:=9;
  // or below will just format the new row
  ExcelWorksheet1.Range['A2','A2'].Font.Name:='Arial Cyr';
  ExcelWorksheet1.Range['A2','A2'].Font.Color := clblue;
  ExcelWorksheet1.Range['A2','A2'].Font.Size:=9;
end;
