Communication between Excel and Word vsto add-in? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a Word add-in written using vsto that allows my users to log in to a service internally that provides access to useful information thye might need..basically this add-in will display in a task pane that they can access from any word document.

    I am now writing a similar add-in in Excel, well really pretty much almost identical, and my question is, is there a way that both add-ins can communicate?

    Ideally it would be great if both were running in the same process space, so that when a user logs in to my service from the word add-in and starts excel, the excel add-in would be already logged in and would share state with the word add-in.

    Does anybody know if thi is possible?


    Many thanks
