Inserting an Excel worksheet into a Word doc via VB

Hi all,

Situation: I have a VB app that creates an Excel report (via the Excel.Application stuff), and now I'd like to link that Excel report into a Word doc. The AddOleObject() method works fine, but only includes the first sheet from the Excel workbook. Can anyone point me to a method that allows me to (ideally) select which worksheet to include? Or even just a method that includes ALL the worksheets from the file?

(I'm using VB6, with Word 10 and Excel 10)

TIA,

DanF

After defining the shape as excel.sheet, you simply display the worksheet:

dim shpExcel as Shape
...
set shpExcel = AddOleObject (...)
...
shpExcel.OLEFormat.Object.Worksheets(yousheetnumber).Activate

Thanks!

Bit of tweaking required:

Dim shpExcel As Word.Shape
Dim objExcel As Object

Set shpExcel = wdDoc.Shapes.AddOLEObject(FileName:="path.to.filename", DisplayAsIcon:=False)
shpExcel.OLEFormat.Activate
Set objExcel = shpExcel.OLEFormat.Object

objExcel.Worksheets("SheetName").Activate
But you pointed me in the right direction. Thanks again.
