It looks like you have done a lot of development from the Excel end in sending AutoCAD your points using VBA.  Do you mean to abandon this approach?  If not, the VBA newsgroup might give more help.

 

If so, consider saving excel data to a CSV format and having a LISP open the file and parse each line into points.  (Are you asking for hints or for a complete program?)

Sorry.  Although it can be done, I don't have one to share.
