Farpoint Spread Formula in VB App


I  need to write custom formula for spread in my application, but so far i have tried using only normal formulas even which arent working.

with vaSpread1
       .row = 1
       .col = 1
       .value = 1

       .row = 1
       .col = 2
       .value = 2

       .recalc = true
       .row = 1
       .col = 3
       .formula = "SUM(A1,B1)"
end with

But i dont find the value reflected in that cell when i run the code. Plez help.. this is urgent and its driving me nuts..

would have loved to assign lots of points but dont have that many.. so plez bear..

Hi rekhasri,

The below code should help

set vaSpread1 = ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("NameOfWorkSheet")
With vaSpread1
       .Cells(1, 1).Value = 1
       .Cells(1, 2).Value = 2
       .Cells(1, 3).Formula = "=SUM($A$1:$B$1)"
End With

Sorry misread the question, don't think I will be any help here.

i have decided to use excel here instead of  spread, and just populated it using ado..
