This chapter explored some of the most important objects in the Excel object model. We use many of these objects in the Excel examples in subsequent chapters. We also consider some additional Excel object model objects used to work with XML in Excel in Chapter 21, "Working with XML in Excel."
This chapter has described these objects as defined by the primary interop assemblies for Excel. You should be aware that VSTO extends some of these objects (Workbook, Worksheet, Range, Chart, ChartObject, and ListObject) to add some additional functionality such as data binding support. Part Three of this book examines those extensions.
