Add data to an existing excel file??

How do you add to an existing excel speadsheet??  Say the excel file exists with 2 columns and x amount of rows.  With a vb form you have your firstname in a label or textbox and your lastname in another.  When you hit an add button it adds the text to excel file in the next available row with the firstname in the first column and lastname in the second column.  Can this also be do without actually opening the file?
