Chapter 12

Microsoft Office Integration

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS CHAPTER

  • Exporting your application’s data to a Microsoft Excel worksheet
  • Understanding Office automation
  • Creating LightSwitch methods that use Office automation
  • Discovering the automation object model with macros

Visual Studio LightSwitch has been designed with Microsoft Office integration in mind. That means you can export your lists and tables to an Excel worksheet without writing any code. The automation features of Office applications make it easy to use Word, Excel, Outlook, or even PowerPoint from LightSwitch, but these tasks require writing code.

In this chapter you will learn how to use these integration features.
