I am working with MS Excel and the graphing engine is not just good enough. I would like to use another graphing engine, eg. Infragistics or telerik, inside Excel. So instead of classical MS Excel 2010 graph I would like to have a .NET one, that can be manipulated from inside MS Excel.

Excel is able to embed COM objects, but has no direct knowledge of .NET. Although you can call some .NET dlls from VBA in Excel, you cannot embed .NET control in the worksheet.

You can do it with Windows.Forms controls in you create an Excel add-in project in Visual Studio as introduced in Programming Excel Workbooks by Using Host Items and Host Controls. I am not sure however that it would work with a 3rd party control.
