Today, Microsoft is pleased to announce the general availability of the Microsoft Excel REST API for Office 365—now developers can use Excel to power custom apps. Excel is an indispensable productivity tool; users across all industries and roles embrace it. It is used for everything from simple task tracking and data management, to complex calculations and professional reporting. With its new interface, Excel for Office 365 can extend the value of your data, calculations, reporting and dashboards.
The Excel REST API release is a continuation of our journey to make Office an open platform for developers. The Office developer framework uses modern web development standards, so developers can build smarter apps that operate as part of Office on mobile, web and desktop platforms. The new Excel interface is exposed through the Microsoft Graph to access to intelligence and insights from the Microsoft cloud.
