Microsoft Excel

I have code embedded in one of my forms for exporting data to and getting data from Microsoft Excel. To do this I import the Microsoft Excel library

' circumvent the requirement of selecting 'Excel' in the 'References' dialogbox:
$TypeLib "{00020813-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}", "1.3", "Microsoft Excel 9.0 Object Library"

The code works great on machines with Office 2003 installed, however I have a user who wishes to use the forms with an older version of Microsoft Office (Office 2000) Also, I would like to upgrade to Office 2010. My programming experience is limited and the line of code I pasted above was acquired from code someone placed on this site. I have no idea how to get this working for different versions of Office. Right now, I get an OLE error on the machine with Office 2000 installed. Can anyone help?
