Custom functions in Excel

Custom functions enable you to add new functions to Excel by defining those functions in JavaScript as part of an add-in. Users within Excel can access custom functions just as they would any native function in Excel, such as SUM().

This repository contains the source code used by the Yo Office generator when you create a new custom functions project. You can also use this repository as a sample to base your own custom functions project from if you choose not to use the generator. For more detailed information about custom functions in Excel, see the Custom functions overview article in the Office Add-ins documentation or see the additional resources section of this repository.

Debugging custom functions

This template supports debugging custom functions from Visual Studio Code. For more information see Custom functions debugging. For general information on debugging task panes and other Office Add-in parts, see Test and debug Office Add-ins.
