Excel & Office Integration

We're creating a VS 2005 C# app that needs to integrate with Excel & Office.
Can anyone tell me which versions of Excel and Office C#/VS 2005 supports?
I'm most interested in knowing how far back the support goes. For example,
is Office/Excel 97 supported? Excel 2002? etc.

Thanks.

I believe the new office tools for VS 2005 only support Office 2003
applications. My guess is that if you need to support previous
versions, you'll have to use COM/OLE code which is MUCH easier in VB
than C. For old versions, you simply import the type library of the
office version you want to support into visual studio. It can be done
in C, but it's rather messy.

I've been working with the Office XP Primary Interop Assemblies, these
support older versions of Office.
