Calling An VB Macro in Excel Sheet from ABAP


In our Project implementation there is a need of Formatting the Excel Shhet and displaying the Output. I know that OLE can do it. But OLE is taking a lot of time.

Someone came up with an idea where we can record a macro in Excel and then call the macro in someway from our program.

Can anybody elaborate on the way how we can Call this Excel macro. I really dont know how we can implement this.

Do anybody worked on these lines.And guide me.

Thanks in Advance,

    FUNCTION rh_start_excel_with_data allows you to download an internal table into a spreadsheet and fire a macro.
