After googling and searching EE for a solution, I finally admit that I need help from you guys (and girls).

I need to append fields to a closed Recordset. It should be easy enough:

            ADODB.Recordset rs = new ADODB.Recordset();
            rs.Fields.Append("My columne name", ADODB.DataTypeEnum.adDouble, 0, ADODB.FieldAttributeEnum.adFldIsNullable, null);

But then I get this error in the second line:
  Message=Error: Missing method 'instance void [MyClass] ADODB.Fields::Append(string,valuetype ADODB.DataTypeEnum,int32,valuetype ADODB.FieldAttributeEnum,object)' from class 'ADODB.InternalFields'.

I have checked the specifications of the Append-method, and itseems that I am using it correctly.
Still, I hope some of you might tell me what's wrong, so that I can correct my code ASAP :)

Looking forward to your replies.

Found the solution:
I had tried the 2.8 and 6.0-version of the ADODB reference, while I had to use:
Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects 2.7 Library

My intention was to make my code more efficient by avoiding an extra for(i = 0; i < n; i++), as I had needed two loops in my original setup:
1. read data into DataList.
2. output into Excel.

I had thought that this would be quicker:
1. read data into Recordset.
2. Use newWorksheet.Range["A2"].CopyFromRecordset(Recordset);

But it turned out to be twice as slow...
