I have information displayed on an ASP page, and from this page I would like to open an existing Excel file and populate certain cells with data from the ASP page.

Is this possible and if so, what is the best way of doing it.  I don't want to create the Excel file using ASP, I want to use an existing Excel file and simply fill in the cells

Many thanks in advance

You need to use Excel --> Import Data -> New Web query. Provide the address / URL of your Asp Page -> Go--> Select the Table (->)-->Import.

Sorry, I should have said that I want to initiate the copy over from the web page, not Excel

I solved this one myself by using ASP to write to a vbscript file and then call the vbscript file to open the excel file and paste in the values
