A couple months ago Robert Green, VSTO MVP, started a series of tutorials on building on Office 2007. Yesterday we published part 3 of his step-by-step tutorials. Thanks Robert!
In this third part of the series of tutorials on Office Business Applications, learn how to create an Excel 2007 solution using Visual Studio 2008 that generates financing information. This tutorial shows you how to create a custom task pane to display data from a database, bind that data to Excel using ListObjects and NamedRanges, and perform calculations on that data. It also shows you how to easily print the data as a PDF. This step-by-step tutorial also includes full source code in Visual Basic & C#. Check out the tutorial on the VSTO Developer Center:
And if you missed the previous tutorials:
- Building an Office Business Application Part 1 – Scheduling Customer Appointments
- Building an Office Business Application Part 2 – Generating Automobile Quotes
These tutorials are becoming very popular so if you’re just getting started with Office development in Visual Studio, this is a great place to start.
