Need example creating a new SharePoint 2010 document and setting attributes

I need an example in .Net (preferably vb.net) of creating a new document in a SharePoint 2010 document library and setting several custom attributes.

We have to uplaod files to a SP 2010 Doc Library via code and set several attributes on it (actually nearly a dozen custom fields).  We haven't been able to find any code that shows how to do this.

I don't see where any of these are examples of creating a document in a document library.

One additional point though, since I need to create new documents (and their metadata/attributes) clearly I'm talking about a .Net desktop application talking ot the SharePoint site.

Don't really care about vb vs. C#, but I do have concerns that from what I read the mechanism is different for SP 2010 than it was for SP 2007.

There are many ways of working with Sharepoint. You can use the Sharepoint SDK to directly access the object model or you can use the Webservices to communicate with the server.

Also most examples I've found don't show how to do an upload from a desktop (no references to services and the like).

In a nutshell, I've got to write something that will upload files into SharePoint 2010 setting some attributes (fields) on them from data in a spreadsheet.

So I've got to read the spreadsheet (which I can do) and the files (same), but upload the files one at a time into the doc library (which I don't know how to do) from a Windows 7 desktop.
