Hi

I am using the following code to set the ID of a cell
Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.Cells(1, 2).ID = "Test"

I use msgbox(Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.Cells(1, 2).ID) to make sure that
the ID is written to the cell

Then when I manually save , close and re-open the file the ID is empty

Is this a VB.net bug? If I use standard Excel VBA it saves the ID fime

Using Application.Cells(1, 2).ID will point you to the active workbook, so it's possible you are not saving the ID to the place you are expecting.  Better would be to get a proper reference to the workbook/worksheet you are interested in then using the Cells method for that worksheet to do your setting.  Obviously I don't know what you are doing so I can't give you the code for this, but if you need help with that, let me know.

Also the documentation (here) says that the ID is saved when the workbook is saved as a webpage.  I haven't used this property before - might it be lost if you save as a normal workbook?
