You could use the Excel automation objects to do it. Here is tutorial on creating a worksheet - it shouldn't be too hard to modify it to open an existing one and change it http://www.vbdotnetheaven.com/UploadFile/ggaganesh/ExcelSpreadsheet04182005093012AM/ExcelSpreadsheet.aspx

Hello, m0tSiE,

The snippet contains a trivial example.  Just change the location of the Workbook to "\test\testing\test.xls" for your case.


    Private Sub Button6_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button6.Click
        Dim xlaTest As Excel.Application = CType(CreateObject("Excel.Application"), Excel.Application)
        Dim wbkTest As Excel.Workbook = xlaTest.Workbooks.Open("D:\Tests\VB Trials\ExcelTests\TestWorkbook.xls")
        Dim wshTest As Excel.Worksheet = DirectCast(wbkTest.Worksheets("Sheet1"), Excel.Worksheet)
        wshTest.Range("B2").Value = Me.TextBox1.Text
    End Sub
