Excel version problem in VB

I used the following code in VB for saving an excel sheet in a machine having Excel Version 10.0.
xl.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs gProject.UserFolder & "\graphtmp.xls"
But I cannot use the dll of this project in a machine having Excel Version 9.0.When it reaches the above code, the program is being stuck.IF the dll is being created in the same machine having Excel version 9.0.,there isn't any problem.How can I solve this problem?

Always make a reference to the lowest version of office. This is, because when there is a higher version of office available
it automatically takes that version, but it cannot take an older version.

A way add the office 9 version to the xp-machine is:

copy to a new folder: excel9.olb and msword9.old and mso9.dll to the Machine having version 10.
Then start your VB project and set the references to the version 9 objects of office. Remember to first
set te office 10 versions off, then close the reference form, open the reference form and click on browse...
select the correct filetype and navigate to the *.olb or *.dll file you want.

This should solve your problem

Good luck

Adding to EDDYKT-Comment:
Remove the reference to the Excel Library in your project references, too.

And be warned, you won't be able to use constants from this library. So you'll have to replace constants beginning with xl with their real values.
