C# and VB.Net
Create high-performance functions and macros for Excel using VB.Net or C#.
Work inside Excel
VScript is fully integrated into Excel 2003, 2007 & 2010. You never have to leave Excel because VScript is an Excel add-in that is built into Excel.
Turbo-charge your spreadsheet calculations
Functions and macros written in C# and VB.Net typically calculate very much faster than VBA equivalents.
Create real, high-performance Add-ins: XLLs
Use VScript to create stand-alone XLL add-ins that you can share with other users. VScript even makes it easy to digitally sign your XLLs with a certificate.
Write functions quicker with fewer mistakes
VScript has many modern features to make writing functions and macros easier and quicker -- plus you'll have more fun along the way:
Realtime error highlighting
What about VSTO?
VScript is different from VSTO (Visual Studio Tools for Office) in many ways:
VSTO is for professional programmers:
It can be complex and confusing to use and requires a lot of time, effort and money to learn.
VSTO is expensive:
You need to buy Visual Studio® which starts at $799.
VSTO is not built into Excel®:
It is an external program and works in a very different way from VBA.
VSTO projects are complicated to deploy:
VSTO is not integrated into Excel, which means that it's difficult to make a few changes and test them quickly. It requires ClickOnce deployment.
VSTO cannot create User-Defined Functions (UDFs):
With VSTO, you can't create functions that you can use in a similar way to SUM() and AVG().
Always stay up-to-date with the latest version.
