Re: ethernet communication
Is the other laptop on the same network as your computer (ie in the same workgroup/domain)? From your computer can 'see' the laptop on the network? If so, you can map a drive letter to a shared folder on the laptop containing the required excel file and just use this mapped drive in your ole program the same way you do now and you don't then need any additional code for ip communication.
All advice is offered in good faith only. You are ultimately responsible for effects of your programs and the integrity of the machines they run on.
