How to Create an Excel File Using Visual Basic.Net

Today I will teach you about How to Create an Excel File Using Visual Basic.Net. Create an Excel File Using Visual Basic.Net provides support for interoperability between the COM object model of Microsoft Excel and your application.

What is Visual Basic’s purpose?

The third-generation programming language was created to aid developers in the creation of Windows applications. It has a programming environment that allows programmers to write code in.exe or executable files. They can also utilize it to create in-house front-end solutions for interacting with huge databases. Because the language allows for continuing changes, you can keep coding and revising your work as needed.

However, there are some limits to the Microsoft Visual Basic download. If you want to make applications that take a long time to process, this software isn’t for you. That implies you won’t be able to use VB to create games or large apps because the system’s graphic interface requires a lot of memory and space. Furthermore, the language is limited to Microsoft and does not support other operating systems.

So let’s get started:

  • First is open the Visual Basic, Select File on the menu, then click New and create a new project.

  • Then a New Project Dialog will appear. You can rename your project, depending on what you like to name it. After that click OK

  • Then design your form like this just like what I’ve shown you below
    Add a Button from the toolbox.

  • After that, Add a Reference to Microsoft Excel Object Library to your project.

To do this:

*Select add reference from the project menu.

*On the COM tab, Locate Microsoft Excel Object Library and then click select.

*After that, Click OK

  • Double click the code window and add this following code to the top of Public Class Form1

  • Then, Go back to Design View and Double click the Button and add this following code.

  • Finally, Click F5 to run the program.

  1. I am trying to do this on windows 7 visual studio 2019, and only microsoft excel 16.0 object library is available under the COM section.
    After I do this, the source editor says the line:
    Imports Excel = Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel
    is unnecessary. What do i do?
