The property is applied to the following object:


The property has the following parameter:


Specifies either the name or index of the desired column. Index of the first column is 0, index of the second column - 1, and so on. The total number of columns is specified by the ColumnCount property.

If the specified column does not exist, an error will occur.

Property Value

The column value. If the column value is incompatible with OLE Variant, the property will return an empty Variant value.


If you use Python or DelphiScript, you should enclose the parameter of the ProgObj.Value property in square brackets: ProgObj.Value[Index].

If the Excel DDT driver retrieves data by using the Microsoft Excel ODBC driver, the latter can truncate cell data to 255 symbols. To determine the data type of a column, Excel scans the column cells of the first 8 rows. If each of these cells contains text shorter than 256 characters, all the subsequent cell values will be truncated to 255 symbols. For more information on this problem and on possible workarounds, see
