Is there a way to instanciate Excel as just an ojbect (without the wrapping program and menu's?), such that you can utilize its spreadsheet layout and functions in your own program window?

So far all i can to is create it as a separate process....

Might want to look into KetilO's spreadsheet control -- IIRC, all Excel solutions would be more than you are after.

excel will always run as separate process. Using CLSID {00020820-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} (worksheet) instead of {00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} (application) may do what you want. But it requires your program to implement a container (IClientSite + IDocumentSite).
