The first case study I plan to do for the coming weeks will be about creating an add-in that includes:
- Creating a customized menu
- Creating a customized toolbar
- Using Application events
- Using a connection to a SQL Server and
- Retrieving data
In that way the case will cover what I consider to be a framework. In order to get Excel developers up to speed the case will include:
- How to create the add-in with VBA and
- Port the add-in to VB 6.0 to create a COM add-in
- Port the add-in to VB.NET to create a managed COM add-in
- Port the add-in to VSTO 2005 SEB to create a managed add-in
Is this OK?
Later I will show how we can solve the issue of creating add-ins for Excel 2000 to Excel 2007.
I finally decided to set up my own blog which will be focusing on .NET and Excel.
I have some simple guidelines when making comments here:
- All comments are subject for moderation before accepted.
- Only real names are acceptable.
- Only real e-mail’s accounts are acceptable.
- No links are acceptable unless they actually contribute to the ongoing discussions.
- No titles or so called ‘tags’ are acceptable, i e they will be removed.
I will post on a weekly basis as I can’t promise to keep a higher pace then that. After all, the virtual life is only a small fraction of the more ‘normal’ life or should I say ’should’ be.
Depending on the blog’s popularity I may consider to move it to an own topdomain or to a subdomain under ExcelKB.COM. Until further notice it will be available at this URL. One important aspect is that I will maintain a ‘clean’ interface for the blog.
Anyway, let me know what You think of this new blog and what You would like to see being posted here.
All the very best from,
