I have developed a very complex business simulation (over several years) using Excel with some VB macros. I would now like to develop this as a standalone application (without the Excel branding). I have tried recreating the simulation as a Visual Studio project but the programming task is enormous without the benefit of cells, formulas, sheets, etc. that Excel is so good at.
Does anyone know of a software product that has the cell and formula functionality of Excel but with the form design, compiling and deployment features of Visual studio.net?
Hope you can help.
