    Default Working with Excel

    DF-19, Win-10
    I'm using cmdExcel.pkg and EXCEL12.pkg, both provided here by Matt Davidian. I'm creating and populating a spreadsheet and that part works fine.

    During the population of the spreadsheet I'm doing the following and the line "Set SetBold of hoExcel True" throws the error shown below because phDispatchDriver = 0.

        Send InitializeExcel to hoExcel "" 
        Send NewSpreadSheet of hoExcel
        Move (SizeOfArray(saResults)) to iMaxRows
        Move (SizeOfArray(saResults[1])) to iMaxCols
        Move 7 to iCounter
        Move 1 to iStartRow
        // excel body
        For iRow from iStartRow to iMaxRows
            For iCol from 1 to (iMaxCols - iStartingColumn)
                Set Cell of hoExcel iRow iCol to saResults[(iRow-iStartRow)][(iCol-1 + iStartingColumn)] 
                If (iRow = iStartRow) Send SetBold of hoExcel True  // errors
        Send SaveSpreadSheetAs of hoExcel sFilename C_XLSX_FORMAT
        Send DeInitializeExcel to hoExcel
    The line that blows up is here, "Set comProperty..."
    Any ideas as to why phDispatchDriver is 0?
        Procedure Set ComBold Boolean value
            Set ComProperty of (phDispatchDriver(Self)) 3 OLE_VT_BOOL to value
    Invalid message. SET_COMPROPERTY

    Error: 98
