Hi Experts:

    I am trying to write program to work with Microsoft Excel, and I know it can work like the following:
**********************************************
using Excel;
            Excel.Application excel = null;
            Excel.Workbook wb = null;
            Excel.Worksheet ws = null;
            Excel.Range rng = null;
            object missing = Type.Missing;
            excel = new Excel.Application();
            wb = excel.Workbooks.Add(missing);
            ws = wb.ActiveSheet;
            rng = ws.get_Range("A1", missing);
            rng.Value2 = "Techrepublic.com";
**************************************************

However, I cannot find the complete reference of the Excel Object library even though I can find some tutorial. Do you know where is the specification of each class and member of this library? Thank you!

Using the Object Browser in the Excel VBEditor will give you a list of the properties/methods/classes and MSDN is a good resource for programming with Office and .Net: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vsto/default.aspx

You could get hold Excel VBA Programmers Reference by Stephen Bullen, John Green, Rob Bovey & Mike ALexander, that has an object model reference within it, a bit simpler than trying to do it on-screen.
