Hi,
I had a previous code to count number of rows in excel 2003 version sheet.But it errors in 2007.Any suggestions


   Public Function GetColumnRowCount(ByVal col As Integer, ByVal xlWorksheet As Object, ByVal xlApp As Object) As Integer
      Try
         Return xlWorksheet.Cells(xlWorksheet.Rows.Count, col).End(-4162).Row
      Catch ex As Exception
         AddMessage(ex.ToString)
      End Try
   End Function

Error:
System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x800A03EC): Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC

Cheers I changed that and it works great.
But any suggestion on why it fails on
 Dim oRange As Excel.Range
oRange(1, 1).Value

 Excel.Range  is the interop excel reference.

Same error
System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x800A03EC): Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC

When I want a single cell, I don't bother with a range object:

       strCol = oSheet.Cells(intRow, intCol).Value

But I'm not sure why you're getting your error.
