Saving Excel Spreadsheet

I need help, this is kind of a continuation of another question, that I has not fully been resolved.  I have created an application that creates a report.  It works perfect on the development machine, but will not save the spreadsheet on a differerent machine.  The difference is the development machine has excel 2002 and the other machine has excel 2000. I am using

xlApp.Application.Workbooks(1).SaveAs("C:/test.xls") and this is where the problem is.

Is there anyway of getting this to work, I need help.  

here is the link to more info on the topic, I am dealing with.

Thanks

Give a try to this....

Dim oStr as Object
dim strFile as String = "C:/test.xls"

oStr = strFile
xlApp.Application.Workbooks(1).SaveAs(oStr)
  OR
xlApp.Application.Workbooks(0).SaveAs(oStr)

ixlApp.Application.Workbooks(1).SaveAs(oStr) is the way I had it to start with but I changed to by putting the fileName in.  What is the difference between having the 0 or the 1 after workbooks?

If you want saving in a previous format, try
ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs Filename:= "c:\test.xls", FileFormat:=xlExcel9795

xlApp.Application.Workbooks(0).SaveAs Filename:= "c:\test.xls", FileFormat:=xlExcel9795
might work also.
By the way I only found the constant xlExcel9795, not something like xlExcel2000.
