VB6 and Excel -- how to format a cell in Excel to merge and center from VB6

Hi all

I am running a VB6 program and sending data to an Excel spreadsheet with columns in. For the header though I want to merge and centre the cells so that the title appears centrally across a row.
any help would be very much appreciated!

kind regards

Here's what you need to do:
Assuming that objSheet is the name of Excel object in your VB6 program.
A1:L1 is the range where you want the heading to appear. You can change it to whatever you want.
 

objsheet.range("A1:L1").select
Selection.merge
Selection.HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter

Open in new window
