I need to be able to open, create and edit an Excel file from a Windows form. I am not worth using DataGrid or DataGridView, abd not a WebBrowser.
What i want is the most similar to Excel itself.

Are some object in the office who i can use to it?

In teory i can use this objet : AxSpreadsheet but i dont find samples for he and when i put this object in the windows form i have a error message when i try to load the form.

Original Error Message in Spanish
Error: Error al crear el formulario. Consulte Exception.InnerException para obtener más detalles. Error: No se puede obtener el identificador de ventana para el control 'AxSpreadsheet'. Los controles ActiveX sin ventana no son compatibles.

google traduction:

Failed to create the form. See Exception.InnerException for more details. Error: Unable to get the identifier of the window to control 'AxSpreadsheet'. ActiveX controls without windows are not compatible.
