The code open a Book named "C:\ExcelBook.xls"
select or insert a sheet named "Libro2"
Insert "Hello" in the cell 5,5
And save the file

Private Sub Comando0_Click()

Dim xlApp As Excel.Application
Dim xlBook As Excel.Workbook
Dim xlSheet As Excel.Worksheet
Dim aux As Excel.Worksheet
Dim exists As Boolean
Set xlApp = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set xlBook = xlApp.Workbooks.Open("C:\ExcelBook.xls") 'Open
'If you want use a preformated book change the method Add to Open (path & "\name.xls")

For Each aux In xlBook.Worksheets
   If aux.Name = "Libro2" Then
       Set xlSheet = aux
       exists = True
       Exit For
   End If
Next

If Not exists Then
   Set xlSheet = xlBook.Worksheets.Add
   xlSheet.Name = "Libro2"
End If
xlApp.Visible = True

'Code to insert values

xlSheet.Cells(5, 5) = "Hello"

xlBook.Save

Set xlSheet = Nothing
Set xlBook = Nothing
Set xlApp = Nothing

End Sub
