1. I'm creating Excel files using ACE.OLEDB - Server side, engine only, no Excel installed on the server.

2. These are simple/trivial 'Excel 12.0 XML' formatted files with just a few columns and rows of simple data.

3. no macros, no VB, just 'plain' XSLX...

I just join to Microsoft developer community and I see here we have a lot of information and there is a website called ExcelDisc.com that provides questions and answers about computer and networking products if you want to join and ask your question there.
