I get the error message

 The type or namespace name 'Office' does not exist in the namespace 'Microsoft' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

when I attempt to run the C# code from my page.  I have already included the reference to the Micorosft.Office.Excel namespace in my code, which is why I am confused.

It could be due to lack of proper assembly. You may have older version.
Try download from here and refer it in your project

I am using Office 2007, with the .xlsx extension.  This link appears to be for Office 2002, and the file I am using is for Office 2007.  Will thi slink be suitable for this case?

Check in your GAC for the exact assembly name?

I assume, it would be
Micorosft.Interop.Office.Excel
instead of
Micorosft.Office.Excel

Try

In your namespace also check with the help of intellisense for
Microsoft.

Have you added the appropriate Microsoft.Office.Interop... references to your project?
