Microsoft Learning: Build Office add-ins for Excel

This module walks through development of Office add-ins for Microsoft Excel.

I work with Microsoft Learning to publish & maintain multiple self-paced learning modules related to Microsoft 365. These modules are primarily used as self-paced study resources for developers preparing to take the MS-600 exam , the only prerequisite to achieve the Microsoft 365 Certified: Developer Associate certification. This is one of those modules.

Microsoft Office clients enable developers to create add-ins that extend Microsoft Excel with custom functionality. Through a JavaScript API, developers can manipulate the content in an Excel workbook from an app running in the task pane.

In this module, you’ll learn how to build an Excel add-in that inserts (and replaces) text ranges, tables, charts, and dialogs.

Learning objectives

  • Create an Excel add-in that uses the Excel JavaScript API to manipulate a workbook
  • Demonstrate how to add and edit content in an Excel document
  • Explain how to deploy and host a custom add-in for Microsoft Excel
