when I tried to compile the code from the above link I get warning shown below. I'm thinking its because I don't have Office 2003. My operating system is Windows 2000 Server and I have Office 2000 installed. I'm using VS 2005
Imports System
Imports System.Reflection ' For Missing.Value and BindingFlags
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices ' For COMException
Imports Excel
 
Namespace or type specified in the Imports 'Excel' doesn't contain any public member or cannot be found. Make sure the namespace or the type is defined and contains at least one public member. Make sure the imported element name doesn't use any aliases.

Did you add the Office or Excel 9.0 reference to your project?

There is no official IA for Excel 2000 so you have to create your own using tlbimp as it says at the top of the article- did you do that?

OK, I did that: I used  TlbImp.exe &  Excel9.olb to make Excel.dll then I copied it to my bin directory of my project. Then I right-clicked on the sol. expl. and added it as a reference. Now I get the following warnings: (see attached jpgs)

Why do you have 2 Excel references and an Office and a VBIDE reference?

I have no idea how those got there. I should take them out, I guess.

It looks like I might have tried to load a project file for vs 2007 into vs2005 and it had the ref to VBIDE which doesn't work with 2005.

No, that's wrong - I got it from some sample files that came with the release of .net sdk 2.0.  When I look at the ref's in the explorer pane, it shows that Excel, Microsoft.Office.Core and VBIDE have the yellow warning icons next to them. I must be missing a driver or update. Yes?

The code you linked to doesn't require references to Office or the VBIDE so I don't understand why you don't simply remove them? If you need Office you would presumably need to build an Office 2000 IA too.
