VBA & Project 2000 & Excel

Here's the trick I wanna pull.

We're trying to get dual reporting out of our paperflow here.  People working in a project have to report Actuals to the Project Manager who keeps his project-file updated and they have to fill in an Excel-file for themselves that goes to the financial dept.
What I want to realize is a macro that fills in an Excel-sheet (The time-sheet) with the Actuals from the given resource from the project-file.  I found nearly all my parameters in the Projectfile and I know how to fill in an Excel-file, but in VBA I haven't got a clue how to link the both together. I would like to make the calculations, then open an Excel file and fill that up with the results from my calculations ... Who can help me ?

TIA

It seems like you only do not know how to open the excel file (correct me if i am wrong). You can do this using the following:

Set MyExcel = GetObject("c:\thefile.xls", "Excel.Application")

Now you can use MyExcel to do all it's stuff.
