Add Notes data to existing Excel file

Is it possible, using LotusScript in R5, to add Notes data to an existing Excel file, when the target file (1)has multiple sheets, (2)the bottom portion of the first sheet -- where the data will be written -- is formatted differently from the top (different column headers), (3)the target columns are merged, and (4)the cell merging in this bottom section does not coincide with cell merging that exists in the top portion? If so, do you have any tips in regard to addressing the target columns?
Assuming that you're running this on an operating system that supports OLE automation, and that has Excel installed, yes, that should not be a problem. There's nothing you can do in Excel that you can't automate. In fact, by using the Record Macro function you can have Excel write the VB code for you -- with a little tweaking, this same code will work in LotusScript.
