Answer
Prasanna , Thank you for your question.

Any compiler should allow you to write a program that creates an Excel COM object and use it to manipulate a spreadsheet.

For the details of the Excel COM interfaces, consult the documentation that came with your Excel product.

You can search Microsoft's Excel and Visual C++ MSDN Libraries at http://search.microsoft.com/us/dev/default.asp.
