How to: Access a Worksheet

  • 2 minutes to read


You need a license for the DevExpress Office File API Subscription or DevExpress Universal Subscription to use these examples in production code.

This example demonstrates how to access worksheets in a workbook. Use the Workbook.Worksheets property to get a collection of worksheets contained in a workbook (the WorksheetCollection object).

To get an individual worksheet by its index or name, use the WorksheetCollection.Item property.

using DevExpress.Spreadsheet;
// ...

Workbook workbook = new Workbook();

// Access a collection of worksheets.
WorksheetCollection worksheets = workbook.Worksheets;

// Access a worksheet by its index.
Worksheet worksheet1 = workbook.Worksheets[0];

// Access a worksheet by its name.
Worksheet worksheet2 = workbook.Worksheets["Sheet2"];

A worksheet index is zero-based. It specifies the worksheet position within a collection. The worksheet name is unique within the collection, and is shown on a worksheet tab. The image below shows worksheet indexes and names in a workbook that is opened in Microsoft® Excel®.
