I am trying to read an Excel file, I was provided the following code but I can not make it compile. Can you provide name of book(s) that explain how to use these components. I have placed the compiler error messages that I get at the end.

  WideString fname = "c:\\test.xls";
        WideString sname = "Hello World";
        RangePtr r;
        Excel->Connect();
        Book->ConnectTo(Excel->Workbooks->Open(fname));
        Sheet->ConnectTo(Book->Worksheets->get_Item(1));

        Excel->Set_Visible(0, True);
        Sheet->Set_Name(sname);
        r = Sheet->Cells->SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell);
        long x = r->Column;
        long y = r->Row;
        r->set_Formula("=sum(a1:b3)+1000");
        long v = r->get_Value();
        Sheet->Cells->set__Default(y+1, 1, v);
        r = Sheet->Cells->get_Range_("a1", "b20");
        FontPtr f = r->get_Font();
        r->set_Formula("=rand()");
        r = r = Sheet->Cells->SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell);
        y = r->Row;
        Sheet->Cells->set__Default(y+2, 1, "=average(a1:b20)");
        Sheet->Cells->Calculate();
        f->set_Color(clRed);
