Normally what I do is just create whatever spreadsheet I want in Excel
with the Excel macro recorder turned on and then look at the macro output
and translate that to RDCOMClient.  There do exist some books on
VBA programming in Excel (I don't have any myself but have taken one
out from the library once) that could be helpful if the macro approach is
not sufficient.
