.net - Identifying Excel Version Programatically?

Sep 22, 2009

My VB.NET (3.5) application generates Excel reports. Newer versions of Excel support the Office Open XML file format, while older versions don't.

I'd like my application to identify which version of Excel is installed on the local machine, and use a different method for generating the report (Newer versions: by generating an XML file. Older versions: by utilizing Excel Automation).

How can I identify the Excel version installed on the local machine?

IDE :: Assembly Version, File Version And Publish Version In ClickOnce In VS 2008

Mar 31, 2009

How they relate and differ from each? What are the best practices for version control? Is there a primer about publish online? Or a good book?

And is it possible to make ClickOnce and a msi in one solution of VS 2008? If so, is there any conflict or pitfall?

BTW I am using VB if that makes any difference.

.net - Choose Which Excel Version To Open?

Jul 30, 2011

I have several excel sheets which I'd like to work with different Excel versions using VB.NET Basically, I want to choose which Excel version I will open certain worksheet using VB.NET. Is there any way to know which Excel version is installed in the machine and how many versions with VB.NET? And how do I choose which Excel version I will open it?

I'd like to know it through programming, I know that this can be done if you take a look at the registry keys in the machine. Although, what I need is to create a software that asks the user for the Excel version he want to open

Excel.Version Incompatible With European Language?

Sep 3, 2010

With XP set to a language such as Spanish (Spain), the VBA-in-Excel function "Excel.Version" returns the text string "11.0" (not "11,1").  It does not respect the language setting.

"CLng(Excel.Version)" then produces the value "110" (wrong!), perhaps because CLng respects the language setting and is looking for a comma instead of a period.

The work-around is easy.  But I need to know if switching to another language requires a setting that my client in Spain missed, or is this just a bug. 

If it is a bug, is the problem limited to this one function (Excel.Version), or are there other functions that return values in text format that are affected?

How can I identify the items in the table that fall after a particular time of day? More specifically, I need to identify which of the data fields have a time after 14:00 on that particular day.

VS 2010 Identifying Bytes Vs Integers When Passed Through A Function

Sep 20, 2011

My issue is regarding overloaded functions of the already provided IIf function that would handle specific types. As you all know the IIf function provided returns objects, rather a specific type so for my needs I created a few overloaded function to do just that but with a specific type in mind. So having said I have IIf functions for types of booleans, strings, bytes, integers, etc etc.

Now my problem is when I'm trying to pass a byte value to this function that would return one of the two byte values. When I do this the designer keeps confusing my values as an integer value and calls for me to convert it to a byte. If I did this then it would defeat my entire purpose for creating these functions-which is to avoid any conversions. The only way I can solve this is by converting the whole statement itself or the true/false parameter parts individual to specify to the designer that these values are bytes. I'm just hoping there's a way of identifying the difference between bytes and integers..

VS 2008 Check Difference Between A Full Version And Unregistered Version?

Sep 1, 2010

I have created a license system for my application with MySql about half a year ago. What it would do is take the serial number and send it to my server if the key was correct it would return a 0 if its wrong the return value would be a 1.The problem was that when the serial number was entered correctly my program would create a "fake file" for example vb.dll in the system.And on run time my program would check for that vb.dll if the file exist it would skip my trial program and run the app as a full version. Half year later i think creating a "fake file" and checking for it on start up is extremely wrong and that's not very good security.How can i check the difference between a full version and unregistered version?

VS 2005 Identifying "duplicate" Street Addresses?

Aug 23, 2010

The problem at hand is to search an Access database for "duplicate" street addresses, given user input of street address, city, state, and zip code.Given the zip code, city and state do not need to be looked at.

My thought was to select off records in the database with the zip code that matches the input, then loop through those records, performing a "similarity" test on the street address field as compared to the input street address. Obviously we cannot test for exact matches (i.e. "SW" vs. "South West", etc.). This problem has obviously been solved before with post office software, algorithms used by mapping applications, etc.

But do you have any thoughts on what algorithm I might implement in a VB 2005 app?
