Falko in the German forum has programmed 96 different PureBasic procedures which call Excel functions using srod's COMatePLUS.PBI. You can download COMatePLUS and ExcelFunktion.pbi from this thread.

For your conveniance I have taken the code of the required procedures to
- Create a new Excel object
- Create a new workbook and save it
- Make Excel visible
- Add a new worksheet
- Rename that worksheet

I have tested the example code below successfully on Windows 8.1 x64 with Microsoft Office 2010 and PB 5.61 x86:

Code: Select all

XIncludeFile "Your/Path/To/COMatePLUS.PBI"

Define ExcelFile.S = GetTemporaryDirectory() + "MyExcelTestFile.xls"
Define ExcelObject.COMateObject

; ----- Create new Excel object
ExcelObject = COMate_CreateObject("Excel.Application")

If ExcelObject
  ; ----- Create new workbook
  ExcelObject\GetObjectProperty("Workbooks\Add")
  SetCurrentDirectory(ExcelFile)

  ; ----- Make Excel visible
  ExcelObject\SetProperty("Visible = #True")

  ; ----- Add new worksheet
  ExcelObject\invoke("Worksheets\Add")

  ; ----- Rename active worksheet
  ExcelObject\SetProperty("ActiveSheet\Name('My new sheet')")
EndIf
