did you already look at code samples to automate Microsoft Excel as from vb.net?

I am using VB 2005 and the examples are usually in vb 6 or earlier and they will not convert when I try to open them in visual studio 2005 I get errors.

the very first hit I got:
http://www.vbdotnetheaven.com/UploadFile/ggaganesh/ExcelSpreadsheet04182005093012AM/ExcelSpreadsheet.aspx

you need only to change the
Dim workbook As _Workbook = workbooks.Add
into:
Dim workbook As _Workbook = workbooks.Open("yourfilepath")

and
Dim range1 As Range = worksheet.get_Range("A1", Missing.Value)

then see point 5 to set the value
