Default excel formatting

I have the following excel 2003 formatting to ask:
I am writing a Visual Basic.Net 2005 desktop application write out data
from a sql server 2005 database to a excel 2003 spreadsheet.

After you look at my questions you can see a portion of the code that I am
currently working with. if you can answer any of the questions below, I would
appreciate it.

I would like to know how to change the following code to do the following:

1. I would like to have the center data in most of the columns including
the column headers.
2. I would like to see all the data in all the cels including the column
headers.
3. I would like the last column of the table to 'wraparound' to the next
line and
display no more that 75 to 100 characters in a line. (The last column
is varchar(500) due to the messages that could be displayed.)
4. I would like the column headers to be BOLD and the font be Times new
Roman
and be able to control the font size.
5. I would like the detail lines to be Times New Roman in a regular font
size.
6. Some of the column headers are larger than the detail column. Thus I
need the
column headers to wrap. Some of the column headers are larger four words
long. Thus, I do not want the column headers to 'wrap' in the middle of
a word. I would like the column headers only to wrap between words.
