I would use Sheet.UsedRange and then hard code to find out were you want to add the cells. You dont give us much code to go on so,:

See sample here:[^]

Good luck

You should take a look here then:

UsedRange (object type of Range) is the collection of used cells in a worksheet. It can be one or more ranges (collections of data), for example: A1:C300 and E1:AH5000. In this case UsedRange object will contains cells: A1:AH5000.
Do you know what i mean?

I guess so, If cell(1,1) is in use, and cell(69000,69000) is in use the UsedRange will returne a 69000 * 69000 values.

But as he was going to make and rewrite the excel sheet from application, i dont think thats a problem.

If you would like to replace existing data, you need to go through these steps:
1) Create the instance of MS Excel application. How? You can use Interop[^] or OLE Automation[^].
2) Open existing workbook,
3) Clear existing data,
4) Export data from your application, using for .. next loop or CopyFromRecordset[^] method for Range object. Personally, i prefer CopyFromRecordset because it's quick ;)
5) Save and close the workbook. Use Close[^] method with parameter SaveChanges:=True

That's all! Good luck ;)
