Dim instance As ExcelService

    out Status[] status


  • sessionId
    Type: System.String
    The Excel Web Services session ID.
  • sheetName
    Type: System.String
    The name of the sheet you want to reference. Sheet name length is limited to 31 characters.
  • rangeName
    Type: System.String
    A range name can be a range reference, a named range, or a named data object. A rangeName string can contain a sheet name; for example, "Sheet1!A1:G17".
  • status
    Type: []
    Alert information.


To calculate a range in the workbook, use range coordinates to select the range. If a range is not specified, the entire workbook will be calculated.

If you specify the sheetName and rangeName parameters, the CalculateA1 method will only calculate the specified range, and will not calculate any dependencies outside of that range.

If the sheetName parameter is empty (that is, an Empty string or Nullis passed in) and the rangeName parameter is empty, the entire workbook will be calculated.

If the sheetName parameter is non-empty but the rangeName parameter is empty, the entire sheet will be calculated.
