According to this document on supported platforms, it should be possible.  Office 2007 is a supported platform.

I don't know what the code would be but I suspect it is similar to other VB code.

mimcc:  Thanks for the link.  I still need to know what references need to be included.  I have done what I want to do in VB 6.0 and VB.net; however, the team I am on now doesn't want me to do it that way, because they only know Excel VBA.  I can't seem to find the right reference to include in the project.  And a code sampe would be nice as well.

Didn't really answer my question, and the question had been sitting out there for sometime.  I decided to go another route.
