    Question Using VB (Excel) Commands

    Hi,

    I want to write a C++ program that interacts with Excel.
    I have used the VB edit from within Excel in past, and want to be able to access or use workbook functions such as 'Workbooks.Open' but in a C++ program.

    Can I used these functions? or are the equivelent C++ functions to achieve the same thing?

    I am using MS Visual Studio 6.00


    Thanks

    1. This is windows specific (moved)
    2. This involves using COM
    3. I think Ken Fitlike has posted some examples of how to do this in the past - try searching the board.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
