Accessing a Schema

Last modified: August 11, 2016

This topic shows one example of how you can access and look at a schema for the REST service in Excel Services. This topic assumes that you have read Sample URI For Excel Services REST API.d

Note Note

The Excel Services REST API applies to SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2016 on-premises. For Office 365 Education, Business, and Enterprise accounts, use the Excel REST APIs that are part of the Microsoft Graph endpoint.

In the browser address bar, type the URI to an Atom XML feed by using a URI, as follows:

http://myserver/_vti_bin/ExcelRest.aspx/Docs/Documents/sampleWorkbook.xlsx/model/Ranges('Sheet1!A1|H3')?$format=atom

Right-click the Web page, and then click View Source.

You should see a schema that looks similar to the following example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<entry xml:base="http://excel.live.com/REST" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/2008/07/excelservices/rest" xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ado/2007/08/dataservice" xmlns:m="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ado/2007/08/dataservices/metadata" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom">
  <title type="text">Sheet1!A1:H3</title>
  <id>http://myserver/_vti_bin/ExcelRest.aspx/Docs/Documents/sampleWorkbook.xlsx/model/Ranges('Sheet1!A1%7CH3')</id>
