I have a VB.Net application that references the Excel 12.0 object library to generate spreadsheets which are used to enter  examination results.  I need to modify the application so that a combo box populated with examination course codes is added to each cell in a particular column .  The course codes populating the combobox depend on a parameter selected by the user.

How do I do this?
