  • Hi,

    OCCI was designed to provide remediation guidance, not automated remediation. We recommend that you test your application as you normally would. When an error occurs, use the comments that OCCI provides to help you remediate the problem area in your application.

    Referece from the following article:

  • Hey Rex,

    Thanks for sharing this information with us. Actually, we found the links recommended by OCCI were redirecting to a same MSDN website which shows what has changed Since earlier versions of MS Office Object Model. The problem is there is NO Alternative Method/Property mentioned anywhere on any of the MS TechBlogs/sites and surprisingly, our code still operate in Office 2010without any modifications.

    Could you help us in providing updated links/references which help us to change the current API calls with their corresponding best suited alternative solutions in Office 2010 environment?

    Thanks in Advance,

  • Hi,

    I've been checking out this blog post recently but unfortunately there is not much detailed information given about MS Excel 9 major impactful changes since Office 2003 model. We're bothered about MS Excel 2003 vs MS Excel 2010 differences. As suggessted on the blog that nearly 800 of the 900 changes in the Excel object model will not cause any impact if we have those items in our Excel macros, but the table which shows list of 9 major impactful changes is evaluated against Excel 2007 object model, not for MS Excel 2003 Object Model.

    Any quick response would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Deepak
