Embedding an excel document into an application with excel online

0 votes

In order to embed an excel document on our internal website, I have been trying the Excel online shared link. However, this approach is impractical because the private nature of the data prevents us from creating a public link.

I wanted to know if there was another way to embed an excel document. I can also say that we require an add-in for an excel document. In my test, my add-in didn't appear in the embedded version of the document, thus I may have made a mistake. I also observed a significant reduction in functionality. I could input some data even with read-write access, but I was unable to delete any of it, which wasn't very helpful in our situation.

Our goal is to be able to :

  1. embed excel document into an application.
  2. feed external data into the excel document when opened or on user input (done by an add-in)
  3. user interaction (read-write-delete according to defined locks and column visibility)
  4. save the relevant data to storage (done by an add-in)
  5. save the document to OneDrive and/or to a specific location.

I am wondering if there are any solutions (now or in progress) that would allow us to have most of the functionality of excel online while being managed by an application.

Possible solutions?:

You have to do the heavy lifting in JavaScript I'm afraid and add-ins are out of the question. See a very rudimentary example of how to interact with an embedded Excel file here: http://www.jkp-ads.com/Articles/embeddedexcel00.asp
