Excel C++ Reading/Editing API RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I realize there are several APIs / libraries for reading and editing excel files in c++. However, I am interested in one that will keep up support for coming versions of excel as well.

    Therefore: Is there any "standard" api/library supported by any person/company/institution that will, at least, as far as one can tell, at this point in time, keep up support fur coming releases of excel? What are the most "standard" c++ Excel reading/editing APIs?

    Cheers!

    C :)

    The MS COM based object model would be the one I'd use.

    I suggest reading excel using ODBC as it needs to support coming versions
