Chapter 15. The Excel Object Model

The Excel object model is one of the most extensive object models in Microsoft’s arsenal, with almost 200 objects and over 5000 properties and methods. As we have mentioned, however, many of these objects and members are included solely for backward compatibility with earlier versions of Excel. When we ignore these objects and members, the object count drops to 140 and the member count is about 3000. This makes the Excel object model second in size only to the Word object model.

We will not discuss the objects and members that are included for backward compatibility only. However, since you should at least be aware of the existence of these objects, we will include them in our pictures of the model (appropriately marked) but not in the tables.
