Default open a formatted excel file from program


I am writing a program in C++ which involves an output of data into an Excel spreadsheet. My question is: is there any way to create a new, formatted Excel file through the program (with defined length of the columns A,B,C,D...., borders, wraped text into the boxes, and color)?

Any ideas for any of these issues are greatly appreciated.
Thanks a lot.

Look up "Importing Files" in Excel Help. You may import files into Excel in several formats. For example, on output from Excel, you may have comma delimited fields so that the contents of each cell in a spreadsheet are written to file with a comma separating each value (irrespective of the width of the cell).

For example,
     | Jan | 12 | 34 |
     | Feb | 54 | 98 |

then becomes


If your program produces output in this format, you can the import it into Excel.
