Excel automation - create xls not xlsx

I have Office 2007 installed, when i run automation code to create a excel workbook, it creates the .xlsx.  I need it to create the .xls.  How do I specify this?

Below is my code that I call to create the workbook...
Public Sub CreateExcelWorkbook(strTemplate)
Set oXL = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
oXL.Visible = False
If strTemplate = "" Then
    Set oWB = oXL.Workbooks.Add
    Set oWB = oXL.Workbooks.Add(strTemplate)
End If
End Sub
