Lets say I have the following code (Which btw I got from the intelligent people here at EE):

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  XL, Sheet: Variant;
begin
  XL := CreateOleObject('Excel.Application');
  if XL.Workbooks.Count = 0 then begin
    XL.SheetsInNewWorkbook := 1;
    XL.Workbooks.Add;
  end else
    XL.ActiveWorkbook.WorkSheets.Add;
  XL.Visible := false;
  Sheet := XL.ActiveSheet;
  Sheet.Name := 'Excel Test';
  Sheet.Range['A1'] := 'Hello, world!';
  Sheet.Range['A2'] := 'This is a really long message that I need to write in the cell';

   Sheet.Columns.Range['A1','A1'].ColumnWidth:=30;
   Sheet.Rows.Range['A1','A1'].Font.Name:='Tahoma';
   Sheet.Rows.Range['A1','A1'].Font.Size:=8;
   Sheet.Rows.Range['A1','A1'].RowHeight:=30;

  XL.ActiveWorkbook.SaveAs(FileName:= 'c:\test.xls');
  XL.Quit;
end;

Now lets say on Cell A2 I need to format the cell to Word Wrap and center each line. How would I do that through the Delphi code?
