  • Hi S.P Singh,

    for a VB.NET platform you can use VSTO.

    every Office Application has an Object Model that you can use to develop and it is free of cost.

    with that you can get the advantages , features and functionality of Object Oriented Language VB.

    with the use of Visual Studio, you can easily develop VSTO Addins.

    Templates are available in that.

    below are some links that will help you to get the detail information.
