I am triying to insert a column into an excel sheet via vb.net.  I've run the macro recorder  to get a start on the code and and am trying to modify the resulting code so that it would work within vb.net.  However I am getting an error on "xlToRight, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove" The error says that xlToRight and xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove are not declared.
 aWorkSheet.Columns("B:B").Select()
  aWorkSheet.Selection.Insert(Shift:=xlToRight, CopyOrigin:=xlFormatFromLeftOrAbove)
