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

This example demonstrates how to add a new worksheet to a workbook. To do this, use the WorksheetCollection.Add method of the WorksheetCollection collection accessed via Workbook.Worksheets.

To insert a worksheet at the specified position in the WorksheetCollection collection, call the WorksheetCollection.Insert method with the passed worksheet zero-based index.

To specify a worksheet name, use the Worksheet.Name property or pass the worksheet name to the WorksheetCollection.Add or WorksheetCollection.Insert method as a parameter. When naming a worksheet, take into account the constraints listed in the How to: Rename a Worksheet document.

// Add a new worksheet to the workbook. The worksheet will be inserted into the end of the existing worksheet collection
// under the name "SheetN", where N is a number following the largest number used in worksheet names in the previously existing collection.

// Add a new worksheet under the specified name.
workbook.Worksheets.Add().Name = "TestSheet1";


// Add a new worksheet to the specified position in the collection of worksheets.
workbook.Worksheets.Insert(1, "TestSheet3");


The image below shows the result (the modified file is opened in Microsoft® Excel®).
