And which edition of VS are you using? I don't think the express edition can use it.

I am using Visual Studio 2008. I am getting the error message at the following line of the code:

            oCommandBar = oExcel.CommandBars.Add("VBAMacroCommandBar",oMissing, oMissing,\);

This is giving me error related to new line character.

Please try the following.  I was able to compile here (VS2008, .NET 3.5, Excel 2007).

oCommandBar = oExcel.CommandBars.Add("VBAMacroCommandBar", oMissing, oMissing, oMissing);
