hi,

I have a form in VB6 that I use to work with Excel
' this is in the general section of the form
Dim Eapp As Excel.Application
Dim Ebook As Excel.Workbook
Dim Esheet As Excel.Worksheet

'This starts Excel and shows sheet1
'sheet1 is the active sheet.
'now you can work directly with Excel and record a macro.

Private Sub mnuExcel_Click()
Set Eapp = New Excel.Application
Set Ebook = Eapp.Workbooks.Add
Eapp.Visible = True
End Sub

'I you do not wish to save Excel click here
Private Sub mnuNothing_Click()
Eapp.Quit
Set Eapp = Nothing
End Sub

hi again,

In VB design mode you should click on the
Project Menu, then click Referances
then scroll to Microsoft Excel 9.0 Object Library
check the box and click OK.

I have Office 2000 which has 9.0..
You might have a different number.

Basically, what leojl saids is true, do you need in other way?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

hi yet again,

Richie, I would appreciate seeing another approach.
Perhaps more sophisticated to first check if there is
a running Excel and also to deal with possible errors.

Thank you for this. Sorry it took so long, I am no longer on the project that needed that.
