Export to Excel from Metro Application

    Question

  • Hi,

    I need to export data from Windows metro application(using Xaml, C# ) to excel. I'm not able to refer to Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel from my application. Is it possible to refer interop dll in a Metro application. If this is not possible is there any work around?

    Thanks,

    Praneeth

  • No you cannot do this.  The apps are sandboxed.

    Office documents support XML format so you can write out anything you want using that.  You can go to the Office forums and documentation for help with that!

  • Praneeth,

    Did you figure out how to do this yet?  If so may I inquire how?
