  • Hi Rizwan,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    Firstly, after creating a Task Pane App for Office, app.initialize is used in Home.js and defined in app.js by default as below:

    Do you have a same JavaScript file as I provided?

    Secondly, what do you mean by ‘list’?

    If it is a SharePoint list, here is an article for your reference:

    How to: Access SharePoint 2013 data from apps using the cross-domain library

    If it is a Word list, you need to select the list first.

    Apps for Office is used to operate the selection or binding data, it is confined Compared to Word Object Model. So I’m afraid there is no way to access list object without selecting.

    For more information, please refer to:

    JavaScript API for Office

    In addition, you could create a VSTO project instead.
