View MS Excel through ASP Page

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Good day!

I have read on this but I need some DB experts to confirm this one.

Is it really possible to display an MS Excel Spreadsheet by using or through an ASP page..?

How can I view it if its possible..?

View MS Excel through ASP Page



Displaying excel can be done on the client side meaning it can be rendered or embedded in the clients' browser. I think it is not possible to do it in the server since the server just pass the interpreted code to the client and nothing else. The excel object should have exist in the client box for it to be possible to be invoke. You can create lots of embedding and rendering technique in your browser that will fit your needs. You can call the excel object directly and embed it in browser. You can also create a query to the workbook and display the results in any format you want. You can also have the browser parse the data and format it as CSV so excel can render it.

I hope it helps,.
