Hi,
 I am getting the following error message

Run-time Error 429 ActiveX component can't create object

 
    Dim sSQL As String
    Dim rRS As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim oExcel As Object        ' Excel application
    Dim oWorkBook As Object      ' Excel workbook
    Dim oSheet As Object     ' Excel Worksheet
    Dim oChart As Object     ' Excel Chart
    Dim iCount As Integer
    Dim commonDialog As Object
    Dim iTop As Integer
    Dim sPreviousDay As String
    Dim iFirstDay As Integer
    Dim iChartNumber As Integer
   
   
    Set oExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    Set oWorkBook = oExcel.Workbooks.Add
    Set oSheet = oWorkBook.Worksheets.Item(1)
    oSheet.Name = "Web Tracking"
   
 This is how i am creating the excel document.


 I have read many articles about refernces etc, but non seem to work.

It works fine on my PC, but not on other peoples.

Any clues?

You need to register the ActiveX components (OCX) on every workstation. You can download Setup/Install-Maker-Programs which are doing this job for you.

I see that you are using a recordset. Are other PCs have the same version of the MDAC_TYP that you have on your PC. Do they have Excel.

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.

You have to check in other machines whether they have Excel, MDAC,Microsoft Chart (Excel Chart) installed on other machines
