I keep receiving the following error whenever I try to add a new Spread Sheet to an existing Excel File.
Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC.
         at Excel.Sheets.Add(Object Before, Object After, Object Count, Object Type)
         at CamShaft.Form1.AddNewExcelSheet() in <My Program Name>
Here is my code:

Dim excelApp As Excel.Application
Dim excelBook As Excel.Workbook
Dim excelBook2 As Excel.Workbook
Dim excelSheet As Excel.Worksheet

excelApp = New Excel.Application
If TempType.Text = "T" Then
   excelBook = excelApp.Workbooks.Open(TestFile.Text)
ElseIf TempType.Text = "R" Then
   excelBook = excelApp.Workbooks.Open(RealFile.Text)
End If
excelSheet = excelBook.Sheets.Add
excelSheet.PageSetup.Orientation = Excel.XlPageOrientation.xlLandscape

Any help would be appreciated.

try this change, from:

excelSheet = excelBook.Sheets.Add


to:

excelSheet = excelBook.Sheets.Add(After:=Worksheets(Worksheets.Count))


That will add the new shett AFTER the last sheet in the current set.

add the sheet, then select the sheet

replace this

excelSheet = excelBook.Sheets.Add

with this

excelBook.Worksheets.Add()
excelSheet = excelBook.Worksheets.Item(SheetIndexNumber)

also note the difference in the code - using 'worksheet' instead of 'sheet'
