I am trying to find a way to populate cells in an Excel spread sheet (preferably without opening it - the operating system may not exist) using data from an SQL table/query in Visual Web Developer 2008 Express. I then need to import the value of other cells in the same xls into another table in SQL/VWD.
Please help
