Example:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim iExcel As Excel.Application
    Dim iWBook As Workbook
    Dim iWSheet As Worksheet
    TempDBPath = "D:\Project\Icon\develop\DO.xls"
    Set iExcel = CreateObject("excel.application")
    iExcel.Visible = True
    Set iWBook = iExcel.Application.Workbooks.Open(TempDBPath)
    Set iWSheet = iWBook.Worksheets("123")

Hi kirtirani,

or use the shellexecute function
http://support.microsoft.com/directory/article.asp?ID=KB;EN-US;Q238245&

this line

StartDoc = ShellExecute(hwnd, "open", "C:\My Documents\Book1.xls", "", _
      "C:\", SW_SHOWNORMAL)

change the open to print like

StartDoc = ShellExecute(hwnd, "print", "C:\My Documents\Book1.xls", "", _
      "C:\", SW_SHOWNORMAL)

reason to use shell to print is that if you close and quit excel while printing you'll get an error because you're trying to throw an object while it's still busy
