I have created a DTS Package in SQL the runs a query and creates an Excel file with that data.  I would like to be able to create the file with some basic formatting (column widths, row height, font & font  size by row or column.  The DTS package creates a VB Transformation script that I will attach below.  Does anyone if it is possible and if so, how I can add sript to this that will include the type of formatting mentioned above?  FYI...I know very little about programming and Visual Basic.  I just started to teach myself some basics but I'm about as gren as it gets.  Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!  Brett

Here is the script:

'  Visual Basic Transformation Script
'  Copy each source column to the
'  destination column

Function Main()
      DTSDestination("OrderNumber") = DTSSource("OrderNumber")
      DTSDestination("OrderDate") = DTSSource("OrderDate")
      DTSDestination("Customer") = DTSSource("Customer")
      DTSDestination("DocumentType") = DTSSource("DocumentType")
      DTSDestination("Project") = DTSSource("Project")
      DTSDestination("Rep_1") = DTSSource("Rep_1")
      DTSDestination("Rep_2") = DTSSource("Rep_2")
      Main = DTSTransformStat_OK
End Function
