Object ExecuteExcel4Macro(
	string String


Type: System.String

Required String. A Microsoft Excel 4.0 macro language function without the equal sign. All references must be given as R1C1 strings. If String contains embedded double quotation marks, you must double them. For example, to run the macro function =MID("sometext",1,4), String would have to be "MID(""sometext"",1,4)".

Return value

Type: System.Object

The Microsoft Excel 4.0 macro isn't evaluated in the context of the current workbook or sheet. This means that any references should be external and should specify an explicit workbook name. For example, to run the Microsoft Excel 4.0 macro "My_Macro" in Book1, you must use "Book1!My_Macro()". If you don't specify the workbook name, this method fails.
