    Smile Excel programing in C++


    After struggling a little bit, now I am able to write a program to access excel spreadsheets using MFC in VS2005. I am able to create the wrapper and able to access excel files, write data into it by specifying a cell number manually.

    Also I can search for data in a given range by using Range.Find() function.

    #define vOpt COleVariant((long) DISP_E_PARAMNOTFOUND, VT_ERROR)
    Range range;
    if(range.Find(COleVariant("09/28"), vOpt, vOpt, vOpt, vOpt, (long) 1, vOpt, vOpt))
    Can someone please tell me how to get the cell number of that specific cell where the data is located.

    Also is there any good tutorial or help file where I can refer to for further questions.

    Thanks in advance

    1. No, there is not any really good documentation.
    2. The usual way is:
    • open Excel
    • record a macro with the actions you want to do
    • analyze the recorded VBA code and look for a similar functions among generated excel automation classes
