Hi Team,

I am getting error namespace name 'Excel' does not exist in 'Microsoft.Office.Interop'

I tried adding Add Reference >.NET> as solution

but could not find in Add reference.

I am using visual webdeveloper 2008 express edition.

Please help me in this.


Your title and the body of the question contradict to each other.

From your question title, it's clear that you expected Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Excel to exist. (Read your own title carefully.) You can easily make sure that such type does not exist:[^].

You just messed up things. And then you though that Excel should be in Microsoft.Office.Interop, as it is expressed in the body of the question. Of course it exists, but this is always a namespace, not a type. You might want to work with the types, like Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application, as well as any other types.

That means Excel is not installed on your system.
