I am developing on a server where MS Office cannot be installed as per policy(but I do have Admin rights). The program is required to open an excel file ,refresh its data sources and save it. As office is not installed on this server I cannot add the Office\Excel references to my project.

Is there a way to install the Office Libraries without installing MS office?

There's fair bit of stuff out there to help - have a look at[^]

or this article on CP
