2007 excel spreadsheet programmically populating Document Properties - Server

I have an excel spreadsheet that I'm creating and then uploading programmically to Sharepoint.  What I'm wondering is, once a certain choice is made on my Excel Spreadsheet, if the Document Properties - Server can be updated programmically as well.  We are wanting these to show up on the Sharepoint site to be able to quickly see what type of change this is.

I have searched high and low on the internet and have yet to find out how to accomplish this.  There is lots of talk about the Custom Properties and Builtin Properties, but, these are actually the Server properties.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, PioneerSRM

This change can only be made with custom vb code in the excel file.  Server Properties don't map to excel files like they do in Word documents.

Actually, that's what I'm looking for is the VB code to be able to do this.  I have several other VBA stuff going on behind the scenes, this is the last thing that I need to get working.

Like I said, I've scoured the internet and have not found anybody that seems to be doing this.  I just can't see why it wouldn't be possible to change with VBA code within the Excel document.
