Private Sub Form_Load()

Dim ExcelSheet As Object
Set ExcelSheet = CreateObject("Excel.Sheet")
ExcelSheet.Application.Visible = True
ExcelSheet.Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(1, 1).Value = "Column 1, Row 1"
ExcelSheet.Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(2, 1).Value = "Column 1, Row 2"
ExcelSheet.Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(3, 1).Value = "Column 1, Row 3"
ExcelSheet.Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(4, 1).Value = "Column 1, Row 4"
ExcelSheet.Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(5, 1).Value = "Column 1, Row 5"
ExcelSheet.Sheets("Sheet1").Cells(6, 1).Value = "Column 1, Row 6"
