Is opening a new Excel file from a Word web add-in even possible?

Ricardo Jose Barrera Arellano 0 Reputation points

I have tried several things without luck. But, the main thing is that my code hits Excel.createWorkbook(); and it throws an error saying that Excel is not defined. I can do whatever I can with Word.whateverNeeded() but not with Excel.anotherThingNeeded() What do I need to add in order for the Excel namespace to be recognized there? What I am trying to do here is that my Word Add-in grabs data from the active document and places that data into a new Excel workbook. Can somebody please help me?
