JavaScript API Tutorial for Office

The API Tutorial is a great way to get started with building apps for Office. The app will teach you how to get basic development tasks done in an interactive way by allowing you to run and edit code directly in Microsoft Excel.

The app contains six tutorials: Write and Read Text, Write and Read Range, Write and Read Table, Update a Row in a Table, Get Selected Coordinates, and Persist Settings. Each tutorial goes over the steps required for completing the task and includes the JavaScript code, documentation, and links to additional resources on MSDN.

You can download the app for free from the Office Store, but you can also run it online from the MSDN website.
