  • No, not without being compiled against the Office 2007 PIAs. Forwards would work (from 2007 to 2010) but not backwards.

  • It should work if you are using VSTO 4 and embed interop classes.

    Cindy, please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Toxter, you are correct (with the caveat (as always) - as long as nothing has changed in the object model that would make the code invalid).

  • Do you have a link for how to embed interop classes?  I've been searching for a simple How To article but not having much luck.  I'm sure it's just I'm not looking in the right place, but if you have a link that'd be very helpful.
