You have the HDirect package, you need some tweaking to compile it with 
the current GHC.
I only have a professionnal access to a Windows box, so I have no time 
to work on an official patch.
You may contact me by e-mail, and I'll send you my patched version of 
the library and some instruction on how to build something that should 
be workable.

If you need to simply create and Excel Sheet, you may also try it using 
the new Microsoft XML format (it will only work with Office 2007, 
though) ; then you do not need COM.

Sincerely yours,
