Hello,

I am using Office Web Component to populate a spreadsheet within ASP.net. the spreadsheet contains numerous figures. What I need to do is create a grand total line within the spreadhseet.
Can any one tell me how to do this  dynamically? the number of rows within the spreadsheet may vary over time depending on the results of the query

Thanks In Advance

Hi,

I'm using owc10 from a VB6 app, I guess there are not much differences from ASP.
This sample will create a formula in cell(1,1) of a worksheet :
sheet1.Cells(1,1).formulalocal="=SUM(D5:D10)"

I would do something like this :

1. Get Start Row
Loop until recordset.eof
    Add a row
end loop
Get End Row

2. Create a formula string "=SUM(xx:yy)"

3. Assign Formula.

I guess that knowing start row and end row of the range you want to sum, you could easily create the formula string replacing the column index by its corresponding letter.
Hope this helps,

Olivier
