Creating a "wrap text" format in Excel VBA

Is there any way to programmatically create an Excel spreadsheet defining a column with "wrap text" format? I have searched the SAP library, but the results were discouraging.

In Excel VBA, to set a column, e.g., D to "Wrap Text", you use:
Columns("D:D").WrapText = True

To do this in ABAP, you'd need to create an OLE Excel object, using (omitting definitions) something like:

CREATE OBJECT o_wks 'Excel.Application' NO FLUSH. 
GET PROPERTY OF o_wks 'Range' = o_rng1 NO FLUSH exporting #1 = 'D:D'. 
SET PROPERTY OF o_rng1 'WrapText' = '1'.
