VSTO in plugin/custom workflow activity? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I have a client CRM 2011 system where for a workflow we will need to check that a particular type of Excel document is present in Sharepoint from a custom workflow activity. So the code can find the Sharepoint location from CRM tables, connect to SharePoint, look for Excel documents in the folder but then need to read these to look for properties.

    This looks straightforward except perhaps for reading the Excel sheet properties. VSTO is the natural way to do this but I am trying to confirm that this can be used from a custom activity.

    This is a premise system.

    Any advice welcome.
