ExcelOpen keeps an Excel file open for speeding up large numbers of write operations.

This function creates a FileHandle object in its execution path that can be used by the ExcelWrite function to write to the opened file. You can also use the SetValue function to assign values to the FileHandle's 'Append' property to add content that way.
