Here is a sample of the cell change handler:

CREATE PROCEDURE [xls17].[usp_sales_change]
    @column_name nvarchar(255) = NULL
    , @cell_value nvarchar(255) = NULL
    , @cell_number_value int = NULL
    , @id int = NULL


IF @column_name = 'licensee'
    UPDATE dbo17.sales SET licensee = @cell_value WHERE id = @id

IF @column_name = 'product_id'
    UPDATE dbo17.sales SET product_id = @cell_number_value WHERE id = @id


The add-in calls such handlers on every cell change.

The cell change handlers can use the predefined parameters like @column_name, @cell_value, or @cell_number_value, and the named parameters with the column names like @id.

The cell change handlers can update underlying tables or raise exceptions to prevent cell changes.
