Code example from the same page:



123 Example

This code example instantiates a 123 Object and sets the object to a Variant variable. The application's Visible property is set to true. A new 123 workbook is created and set. A range is set. The contents of the first cell on the sheet is set to a string. The user is prompted to close the application with a messagebox. The application is then closed.

Dim w123 As Variant
Dim doc As Variant
Dim r As Variant
Set w123 = CreateObject("Lotus123.Workbook")
w123.Application.Visible = True
Set doc = w123.Application.NewDocument
Set r = doc.Ranges("A:A1..A:B10")
r.Cell(0, 0, 0).Contents = "Hello 123 from OLE Application"
MessageBox "Close 123"
w123.Application.QUIT

I am not aware of Delphi equivalent of the code. But this much of info is more than enough for even an avearge Delphi programmer to begin with. Just see how you create the Application Object or its equivalent. Use an Object Explorer to learn the Object Model as exposed by the Automation Server, and you are ready to go.

The answer to your question was simple. "YES".

I don't really think that was a grade to give. Please ask in the community support to have the grade changed to A.
