I'm successfully using OLE Automation to call Excel.

However, I haven't been able to figure the syntax (if there is any) for calling a VBA function and getting the result.

fxlApp.Run( ''Workbook.xls'!Macro');  of course will run macro.

Is there similar syntax to call a user-written VBA string function, that could be assigned to a Delphi string.
