When working with formula's in Excel using automation, you have to know what language-version of Excel is installed (English, Dutch, French, etc.) in order to write your formula (eg. SUM/SOM/SOMME, ROUND/AFRONDEN/...).

The function

There must be a way to use formula's independant of the language, so you only have to write them in English.

How can you do this?

The function

xlApp.International(lxlCountryCode));(with lxlCountryCode = 1) returns the language being used.

123If I do the following in Excel

Range("A1").Formula = "=Sum(B1:B10)", A1 will contain the formula in the local user his language.If I do the same in Navision, it A1 always contains

"=Sum(B1:B10)", it does not translate the formula.It would be SUPER, and I mean super super handy to get this working since we have EMEA offices where all users have Excel in their native language and I do not want to start looking at the Excel version of the user and start saving all formulas in all languages.

12360123I was actually entering an article about this on my blog when I got a message you replied to this post :-).

You can read how I solved it on my blog article here: http://www.noisyvan.com/2008/10/09/make-exporting-excel-formulas-fully-multilanguage-aware/.

Is it allowed to put just a link to this article or should I cope the content over here too?
