Include excel 9 object library.
dim ex as excel.application
Set Ex = New Excel.Application  'intialize excel    
If Not fso.FileExists(txtSourceFolder.Text & "\" & "test.xls") Then
    Set wrkBook = Ex.Workbooks.Add
Else
    Set wrkBook = Ex.Workbooks.Open(txtSourceFolder.Text & "\" & "test.xls")
       
End If

Ex.DisplayAlerts = False
Set wrkSheet = wrkBook.Sheets(2)  'get the current sheet
   
wrkSheet.Name = "xxxx"
'title of the report
'your value here
wrkSheet.Range("C1").ColumnWidth = 20.14
wrkSheet.Range("C1").Value = "xxxx"
You can auto fit also
