This is using the Excel.Application from Microsoft Excel 11.0 but you only have to change it to Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application.

Try this:
Dim objExcelApplication As New Excel.Application
Dim objExcelSheet As New Excel.Worksheet
Dim objExcelBook As Excel.Workbook
 
Try
 
  If objExcelApplication Is Nothing Then
        MsgBox("Not possible to open Microsoft Excel", MsgBoxStyle.Critical, strMessageTitle)
        Exit Sub
  End If
 
  Dim oldCI As System.Globalization.CultureInfo = System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture
  System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = New System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-US")
 
  objExcelBook = objExcelApplication.Workbooks.Add
  objExcelSheet = objExcelBook.Worksheets(1)
 
   objExcelSheet.Cells(1, 1) = "test"  
   objExcelApplication.Visible = True
 
   System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = oldCI
 
Catch COMEx As System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException
  MsgBox("Error in Microsoft Excel", MsgBoxStyle.Critical, strMessageTitle)
 
Catch ex As Exception
  MsgBox(ex.Message, MsgBoxStyle.Critical, strMessageTitle)
 
Finally
  objExcelSheet = Nothing
  objExcelApplication = Nothing
  GC.Collect()
End Try
