hey guys,

i've got this code

        Select Case penmExcelVersion
            Case enmExcel2003
                intLastRowOfSheet = 65536
            Case enmExcel2007
                intLastRowOfSheet = 1048576
        End Select

Open in new window


Question: what's the best way to check if the excel sheet i'm looking at has 65536 rows or 1048576 rows?

Homework: i can't use Application.Version because Excel 2007 can also create Excel 2003 sheets (.xls) which has 65536. i can't use the extension name (or rather it's not that reliable) because if i'm detecting for .xls, what if there's an xlt? yes i can list down all the Excel 2003 extensions but doesn't seem very elegant.
