Hello,

I'm trying to add a ribbon toolbar into Excel by creating a Add-in in Visual Studio. That ribbon will have butons that, when clicked, will insert some names into the active cell of the active sheet where the button was pressed. For instance, I have a button btnInserirLinha that when I click I want to write "Test" to the cell where the cursor is on the sheet.

I've the following code but this is for reference a closed workbook. I need to reference the actual workbook.

How can I do this?

Thanks for your help.

    Private Sub btnInserirLinha_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As Microsoft.Office.Tools.Ribbon.RibbonControlEventArgs) Handles btnInserirLinha.Click

        Dim objExcelApp As New Excel.Application
        Dim objExcelBook As Excel.Workbook
        Dim objExcelSheet As Excel.Worksheet

        objExcelBook = objExcelApp.Workbooks.Open("c:\STDJUNE.xls")
        objExcelSheet = objExcelBook.ActiveSheet

    End Sub
End Class

Hello, jppinto,

Are you just looking for the ActiveWorkbook property of the Excel application object?  That is:

     objExcelBook = objExcelApp.ActiveWorkbook

Cheers,
Randy
