Office.js: Slicers & Filters RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    is it possible to manage slicers and\or filters on Table Data in Excel 2013 via Office.js?  I'd like to develop an app able to manage not only selected data on the sheets but also filters on a table (or matrix....).

    Is there a roadmap for this?

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    In Office Apps, We could interact with table data through data binding. But I don’t think it is possible to manage Slicers & Filters through Office JavaScript API.

    The apps for Office is a new programming model, and it provides new experiences in Office applications by surfacing web technologies and cloud services right within Office documents, email messages, meeting requests, and appointments. Compared with VSTO, VBA, interaction with the Office client object models is only partially supported in Office App.

    Here are several articles for your reference, and hope it would help you.
