    Integrate C++ program into VBA

    I had researched into using .NET to create components for Excel earlier this year (Jan 2006). Here is what I found: 1) Debugging problems is quite tedious. Is the problem in your Excel code, .NET code, or an environmental issue? When .NET code bombs out, the error does not surface. 2) The...
