Office Web Components
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Office Web Components (OWC) are a group of OLE components (allows embedding and linking to documents) implemented as ActiveX controls in Microsoft Office 2000, Office XP and Office 2003. These ActiveX Controls can be plugged into web pages, Visual Basic and VBA forms, Windows Forms or programmed in-memory. The OWC can be used by any COM-compliant Component Object Model programming language. Applications like Excel, Access and FrontPage allowed creating interactive web pages using Office Web Components.
The following components are included:
- Pivot table
- Data source component
The Office Web Components have been discontinued in Office 2007, and are not included, except as a part of Office Project Server 2007. However, they will still be available for download from Microsoft's website. Microsoft has not yet offered a complete replacement for the Office Web Components. However, programmers can use a combination of third party products, Excel Services or Visual Studio Tools for Office to provide similar functionality.
There are currently four books in print on programming the OWC.
