This example is for a document-level customization.

private void ShowColumnDifferences()
{
    Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.NamedRange columnDifferencesRange =
       this.Controls.AddNamedRange(this.Range["A1", "C5"],
       "columnDifferencesRange");
    this.Range["B1", "C3"].Value2 = 22;
    this.Range["B4", "C5"].Value2 = 11;
    Excel.Range range2 = columnDifferencesRange.ColumnDifferences(
        this.Range["B5"]);
    range2.Select();
}
Private Sub ShowColumnDifferences()
    Dim columnDifferencesRange As _
        Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.NamedRange = _
        Me.Controls.AddNamedRange(Me.Range("A1", "C5"), _
        "columnDifferencesRange")
    Me.Range("B1", "C3").Value2 = 22
    Me.Range("B4", "C5").Value2 = 11
    Dim range2 As Excel.Range = _
        columnDifferencesRange.ColumnDifferences(Me.Range("B5"))
    range2.Select()
End Sub
