VSTO & .NET & Excel

Information about ExcelKB

Filed under: .NET & Excel, Developer sites, SQL Server, Tools, VSTO & Excel, XL-Dennis' freewares — Dennis M Wallentin @ 7:35 pm

Since 2004 I have been running ExcelKB where I have posted articles about Excel and .NET/VSTO on a regular basis. Overall it has had a quite a number of visitors and also a great number of page views.

Under all these years I have paid for the service of using a Microsoft SQL Server database to handle all the articles. Now I have decided to no longer use that service and therefore all the articles will be dropped. The site itself will only be a “Window” for my business, free tools and together with my upcoming commercial tools.

If You want to save any article from the site than do it as soon as possible as the articles will be dropped by the end of March this year. I may consider posting some of them here later but at this stage I do not want to promise anything.

From now on this blog will be the only place where I will view my opinions and share my knowledge on various topics. In other words, You know where to find me!

Kind regards,


  1. Can’t you transfer those articles to this blog? it would be a bunch of work I guess.

    • Jon,

      I have made some tests but it will be a too time consuming process. But like I said in the post I may publish some of the articles in updated versions.

      Kind regards,

  2. Thanks for the announcement ahead of time, Dennis. Your articles there are an excellent resource, and I’ve already saved many, MANY articles of yours from there.

    But I’ll now go give it another look…

    Thanks Dennis, and keep up the great work! 🙂

    • Mike,
      Thank You very much for Your kind words. At present I’m evaluating a new software for ExcelKB. When it’s up & running I have decided that the most viewed .NET/VSTO related articles will be re-published (and at the same time updated accordingly) at ExcelKB.

      Kind regardsl

  3. Sounds like an excellent idea! Hope it’s not too much work, but your readers will appreciate it, for sure. 🙂

    • Mike,
      No it will not be too much work as the framework for each article is done and the lack of e-mails that say anything is wrong speak for itself.

      Kind regards,

  4. Missed it by THAT much. Hope to see the content again soon, Dennis. The Excel ADO stuff is really useful. Sorry I missed the closing date.

    • Alex,
      Thanks for Your kind words. Upto this date I have received lot of e-mails from people about the articles. et us see what will happen in the future but after the agreement with MSFT I have limited rights to the material.

      Once again thanks for Your kind word,
