Hi all,

I have an excel file with many different, but very similar, userforms
When i click on a cell in my worksheet a specific userform will open according to the cell text.

I wanted to know if there is a way to add a c# form to excel which will behave as a userform?
Since the visual studio interface is much simpler and a lot more generic then vb...

Thanks

You have some possibilities:
1) Actually Excel (and practically all Office application) support Add-ins. Thus you could make a legacy excel add-in. There are several tutorials out there, but this is not the simplest one.
2) An other interesting approach: http://exceldna.codeplex.com/[^]
3) You can call managed code from excel vba, but it is not the wisest one, since vba runs in a rather undeterministic way. Start here: http://richnewman.wordpress.com/2007/04/15/a-beginner%E2%80%99s-guide-to-calling-a-net-library-from-excel/[^]
4) Interop Forms Toolkit[^] might be also an alternative to consider.

Thanks for your answer.
All of your suggestion seems reasonable, I will have to examine them more thoroughly.
