Yes, it shows how you to work with Excel spreadsheet, but do Sharepoint allow such modifications? And example how to open spreadsheet in Sharepoint would be nice. – Andriy Shvay Nov 22 '10 at 13:56

You could also take a look at OfficeWriter, a product from SoftArtisans. It has the ability to create and modify Excel (and Word) documents programatically. OfficeWriter is much easier to work with than the OOXML SDK. It can also interact with SharePoint 2010 (and 2007). They have information about both OfficeWriter and it's SharePoint integration on their website at

Full Disclosure - I work at SoftArtisans.
