Application Application Application Interface


Represents the entire Microsoft Excel application.

public interface class Application : Microsoft::Office::Interop::Excel::_Application, Microsoft::Office::Interop::Excel::AppEvents_Event
public interface Application : Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel._Application, Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.AppEvents_Event
Public Interface Application
Implements _Application, AppEvents_Event


This is a .NET interface derived from a COM coclass that is required by managed code for interoperability with the corresponding COM object. Use this derived interface to access all method, property, and event members of the COM object. However, if a method or event you want to use shares the same name under the same COM object, cast to the corresponding primary interface to call the method, and cast to the latest events interface to connect to the event. Refer to this topic for information about the COM object. For information about the method and property members of the COM object, see _Application.

The Application object contains:

  • Application-wide settings and options (for example, many of the options in the Options dialog box - accessed through the Tools menu).
  • Properties that return top-level objects, such as ActiveCell, ActiveSheet, and so on.

Use the Application property to return the Application object.
