From VB to VB via Excel

Well i am looking for to send some values from my VB programme stored as variable or as Array to go in Excel, so that i can perform some functions there

Im using VB6 and Excel 2000

RE: From VB to VB via Excel

'I tested this on VB6 and Excel98.
'A dummy array of 10x5 is made and exported to the active excel sheet.
'Excel is assumed open. later you will put in the error handling for when
'Excel is not found ...
'If Err.Number <> 0 then CreateObject(.. etc
'Hope this much is useful to start with

Option Explicit
Dim myArray()
Dim i, j

Private Sub Form_Load()
End Sub

Sub dummyArray()
ReDim myArray(1 To 10, 1 To 5)
For i = 1 To 10
For j = 1 To 5
myArray(i, j) = i * j
End Sub

Sub ArrayToExcel()
'These objects show in Object Browser of VB6
'Only after
'VB6 Menu->Project->References->MS ExcelObjectLibrary checkbox->OK
'From here onward, the Excel Objects of VBA are available to VB6

Dim myExcel As Excel.Application
Dim myWorkbook As Excel.Workbook
Dim myWorkSheet As Excel.Worksheet
'Assuming Excel is open
Set myExcel = GetObject(, "Excel.Application")
'Assuming Excel has an empty worksheet active
Set myWorkSheet = myExcel.ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet
For i = 1 To 10
For j = 1 To 5
   myWorkSheet.Cells(i, j) = myArray(i, j)
'This being the basic functionality,
'I leave to you the cleaning up and error handling
End Sub
