    Is it possible to update/create links to other Excel / PowerPoint files using this new API ?

    Alternative to Interop ?

    We had all that in VBA forever. Why you don't simply port VBA?

    Awesome news! Long awaited updates. Now, we need to refactor a lot of code.

    Maybe some heads up next time so we know the road-map of the API, please!

    @Charles:VBA is really old style. My opinion is that JS will be limited and heavy if they port VBA to it. Plus how will it work in Office online?
