I am get an assert error when calling WorkBooks::OpenText

I traced it down the code to dispatch->invoke and the return code from that

was 0x80020008 DISP_E_BADVARTYPE One of the arguments in rgvarg is not a valid variant type.

I had a VARIANT for all my arguments besides the 5th which is a long

My question is then the following almost all the paramters are optional

besdides the first which is the filename

I assumed optional was a NULL so.

I coded the following for NULL

VARIANT varfalse.

varfalse.intVal = 0;
varfalse.vt = VT_INT;

is this correct ?
