VB.net drag text onto an Excel cell

Hi

In my VB.net Excel add-in I am using the following code to drag the text of a TreeView node into a DataGridView cell by first automatically finding which cell the mouse is over. Can this code be adapted to drop the text into the cell that the mouse is over in the Active spreadsheet


    Private Sub DataGridView1_DragEnter(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.DragEnter
        Try

            If e.Data.GetDataPresent("System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode", True) Then
                'TreeNode found allow move effect
                'e.Effect = DragDropEffects.Move
                e.Effect = DragDropEffects.All

            Else
                'No TreeNode found, prevent move
                e.Effect = DragDropEffects.None
                Exit Sub
            End If

        Catch ex As Exception

        End Try
    End Sub


    Private Sub DataGridView1_DragDrop(sender As Object, e As System.Windows.Forms.DragEventArgs) Handles DataGridView1.DragDrop
        Try

            'Check that there is a TreeNode being dragged
            If e.Data.GetDataPresent("System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode", _
                  True) = False Then Exit Sub

            'Get the TreeNode being dragged
            Dim dropNode As TreeNode = _
                  CType(e.Data.GetData("System.Windows.Forms.TreeNode"),  _
                  TreeNode)
            'TextBox1.Text = dropNode.Text

            Dim p As System.Drawing.Point = Me.DataGridView1.PointToClient(New System.Drawing.Point(e.X, e.Y))
            Dim hitTest As DataGridView.HitTestInfo = DataGridView1.HitTest(p.X, p.Y)

            If hitTest.RowIndex <> -1 AndAlso hitTest.ColumnIndex <> -1 Then
                'IF THERE IS A HIT
                Dim cell As DataGridViewCell = Me.DataGridView1(hitTest.ColumnIndex, hitTest.RowIndex)
                'Dim oRowIndex As Integer = hitTest.RowIndex
                Dim oColumnIndex As Integer = hitTest.ColumnIndex
                'MsgBox(CStr(oColumnIndex))
                DataGridView1.Rows(0).Cells(oColumnIndex).Value = dropNode.Text
            End If


        Catch
            MsgBox("There was a problem with the drag and drop ")
        End Try
    End Sub

Excel will handle it as long as its plain text.

Because Excel cell is beyond your control, you would need to put node text on the drag rather than the node itself as Excel wont be able to understand node.

How would I handle the drop event onto the spreadsheet. Do I add a handler?
