Need To Format a Excel Worksheet Cell from VB.NET Code

Cognize used Ask the Experts™
Hi I'm using com objects to format cells in an excel sheet from VB.NET code.

I've got code for simple formatting like so:

EX.Document.worksheets(1).Range("A1:A1000").Font.Bold = True

I need to be able to specify that cells in a certain range should be left padded with zeros where they are less than 4 characters long.

Psuedo Code:


Does such functionality exist to do this??
