    Smile Excel applications in MFC

    Hello all,
    I am developing a project and want to use excel in it. I have followed all the steps which Microsoft has provided http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307473/EN-US/ and still I have few problems

    In step 6 when I add #include "CApplication.h" to "AutoProject.cpp", I am getting a lot of errors.

    Code:

    Re: Excel applications in MFC

    I too have received this error when I added a new dialog to my application. I had mistakenly derived it from CDialogEx instead of CDialog. This added a #include <afxtoolbars.h> or some such header file line to my stdafx.h file. (I removed this line before replying to this post, so I don't remember exactly)

    This caused a conflict with the definitions for excel automation header.

    Removing the include file line in stdafx.h, and deriving from CDialog instead of CDialogEx solved this problem for me...

    Hope this helps some poor hapless soul solve his problem... As a general hint, if such problems seem to be occurring after some recent code change to existing code, compare the two versions of code to zero in on such issues....

    Cheers,
    Zorro

    Re: Excel applications in MFC

    Hahaha, would you believe it? I got this problem again, and searched for a solution. Ended up finding my own post! Now that's what I call contributing!

    BTW, the header file name is <afxcontrolbars.h> ... What do you know, I just improved my own answer after 3 years or so!
