Hi all,

 I have developed an application. In that I have been provided an option for the user to import data from the listview control to Excel file. I have done that as follows
Dim  excelapp as Excel.Application
excelApp = new Excel.Application
....
..

 In my system the excel object is linked with excel10 version. If I make the application package and install that in some other system the export does not work.. I think this is problem with excel version...

 Is there anyway to create excel file with out using the excel.application.

 Thankyou in advance..

With regards,
lam.

use late binding


remove excel references

and use

Dim  excelapp as object
set excelApp = createobject("Excel.Application")


This way is version independent

Hi,

 I got solution for the problem..

 I was developing the system in english version of windows and packing the application on english version itself. But, I was testing on japanese version of windows thats the problem since it is having excel also in japapanese.

 So, What I did is I have made two installation types english(packed on windows english version), javapanese(packed on japanese version).

 It is working nice..

 Thanks a lot..
