I have created and opened a new Excel spreadsheet using COM in Visual Studio 2010 C++.  How can I rename a sheet in the workbook and how can I save the workbook to a specific location?  I made this worth 500 because I put 2 questions in here but I'm pretty sure they are easy answers.  I just don't know the correct method to use or where to look to find a list of methods available through COM for Excel.

XL.CreateInstance(L"Excel.Application");
XL->Visible = true;
XL->Workbooks->Add();
Excel::_WorkbookPtr p_workbook=XL->ActiveWorkbook;
Excel::_WorksheetPtr pSheet = p_workbook->ActiveSheet;

Looks like I'm gonna answer my own question!  

To rename a sheet in Excel through C++ COM:

Excel::_WorksheetPtr hosenSheet(XL->Worksheets->Item[7]); //Stores ptr to Sheet 7 as chosenSheet
chosenSheet->Name = "Compat Rules"; //Renames Sheet7 to Compat Rules

Open in new window


And finally to save the workbook to a specific location:

char outputPath[200];
char* wndwsUserID = getenv("USERNAME"); //Gets current user logon name for windows
strcpy(outputPath,"C:\\Documents and Settings\\");
strcat(outputPath, wndwsUserID); 
strcat(outputPath,"\\Desktop\\test.xls");
