How to: Access a Cell in a Worksheet
- 3 minutes to read
This example demonstrates several ways to access individual cells.
- By row and column indexes of a cell via the Worksheet.Item property.
- By a cell reference (for example, A1, B2, etc.) or by row and column indexes from the worksheet’s collection of cells. Use the CellCollection.Item property.
By a column index or column heading from the specified row. Use the Row.Item property.
By a row index or row heading from the specified column. Use the Column.Item property.
See the How to: Access a Row or Column example to learn how to get an individual row or column.
- By a cell index from the specified range of cells, or by row and column offsets relative to the cell range. Use the CellRange.Item property. See the How to: Access a Range of Cells document to learn how to access an individual range of cells in a worksheet.
using DevExpress.Spreadsheet; // ... IWorkbook workbook = spreadsheetControl1.Document; Worksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets; Cell cellA1 = worksheet[0, 0]; // Cell A1 Cell cellB2 = worksheet.Cells["B2"]; // Cell B2 Cell cellC2 = worksheet.Cells[1, 2]; // Cell C2 Cell cellD3 = worksheet.Cells[2, 3]; // Cell D3 Cell cellE4 = worksheet.Rows["E"]; // Cell E4 Cell cellF4 = worksheet.Rows["4"]; // Cell F4 Cell cellG5 = worksheet.Columns; // Cell G5 Cell cellH6 = worksheet.Columns["H"]; // Cell H6 Cell cellI7 = worksheet.Columns["I"]["7"]; // Cell I7 // Access a cell from the range of cells. Cell cellB5 = worksheet.Range["B3:D6"]; // Cell B5 Cell cellD6 = worksheet.Range["B3:D6"][3, 2]; // Cell D6
The following images demonstrate how rows and columns are indexed in a worksheet and in a cell range.

Use the CellCollection.Item property to access an individual cell by a string reference. To access a range by a string reference or a defined name, use the Worksheet.Item, Worksheet.Range or IWorkbook.Range property.
