Office Add-in host and platform availability

To work as expected, your Office Add-in might depend on a specific Office host, a requirement set, an API member, or a version of the API. The following tables contain the available platform, extension points, API requirement sets, and common API requirement sets that are currently supported for each Office application.

If a table cell contains an asterisk ( * ), that means we’re working on it. For requirement sets for Project or Access, see Office common requirement sets.

Note

The build number for Office 2016 installed via MSI is 16.0.4266.1001. This version only contains the ExcelApi 1.1, WordApi 1.1, and common API requirement sets.
