I am implementing an Excel Add-in, in which the requirement is we have to download the data from the Service Layer and display it in the Excel sheet.The user can make some modifications to the data that is displayed in the excel. To track those events I'm using column change event of the data-table as i am using

The problem I'm facing is in any one of the cell, I'm giving a formula, say for Example. I have 3 cells A1,B1,C1.

A1 contains 2. B1 contains 3. in C1 I'm giving the formula as =A1+B1, the cell is showing 5 and I'm able to get the value while I'm debugging.

But when I'm updating the cells of A1 & B1 to 5 and 6 the cell C1 is also getting changed but I'm unable to track it.

What I have tried:

Here is the code which I am using

web = new WebClient();
url = string.Format("{0}/DownloadData?parm1={1}&parm2={2}&parm3={3}", baseUrl, userName, _value);

string  response = web.DownloadString(url);

// converting the data to DataTable as the response is XML Format
using (StringReader stringReader = new StringReader(response))
    _dsDownloadData = new DataSet();

// I am using column changed event of DataTable to track the changes.
 _dsDownloadData.Tables[1].ColumnChanged += new DataColumnChangeEventHandler(ProductRevenueData_ColumnChanged);

public static void ProductRevenueData_ColumnChanged(object sender, DataColumnChangeEventArgs e)
        // Trying to track the changes here
        clsProductUpdateXMLManager.Insert(e.Row, e.Column);

    catch (Exception ex)
        MessageBox.Show("Error", "Error-Window", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Warning);

You have to use Worksheet.Change Event (Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel)[^] instead of ColumnChanged. Note that this event does not occur when cells change during a recalculation!

If you would like to catch cell calculation event use appriopriate Worksheet.Calculate event[^].

Good luck!
As I am binding the data table, and I want to get entire data row Information on cell value change. so How can I do it?
