Creating Worksheets from Existing Excel Instances in VB.NET?

Hi everyone,

I use the following code whenever I export to Excel from VB.NET

objExcel = New Excel.Applicati on()
objWorkBooks = objExcel.Workbo oks
objWorkBook = objWorkBooks.Ad d
objWorkSheet = objExcel.Active Workbook.Active Sheet

The problem is that every time I need to export, it results in creating
a new instance of Excel in memory. Excel is a bit of a resource hog,
and suffers from memory leaks. Is there a way to open another
worksheet from an Excel process/instance that is already running if
there is one?

How would I do this?

Thanks!

If objExcel is nothing then
objExcel = New Excel.Applicati on()
End if

Use that code and you won't generate a new Excel application every time.

objExcel is not a global variable and only accessible in this function.
If Excel is already opened manually by the user I would like to use
that instance as well. Is there a way to attach to an existing
process?

I can't find any information on this. If I have an existing query and I want to dump it into a page on a spread sheet and modify it as a pivot table all in VBA, can I do that? I only have the code so far (that works) to dump in the data and create a chart based off it... except I have to manually alter the data I dumped in into a pivot table for the chart to make sense every time.... it sure would be nice if VBA would do it for me!

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
