You can programmatically add a data object to the data cache in a document by calling the StartCaching method of a host item, such as a Document, Workbook, or Worksheet. The StartCaching method is private, but it appears in IntelliSense.
When you use the StartCaching method to add a data object to the data cache, the data object does not need to be declared with the CachedAttribute attribute. However, the data object must meet certain requirements to be added to the data cache. For more information, see Caching Data.
To programmatically cache a data object
Declare the data object at the class level, not inside a method. This example assumes that you are declaring a DataSet named dataSet1 that you want to cache programmatically.
Instantiate the data object, and then call the StartCaching method of the document or worksheet instance and pass in the name of the data object.
