Embedding an Excel Spreadsheet in a Windows Form

I'd like to embed an Excel spreadsheet in my C# application.

The information I've found on the Web suggests placing a Web Browser
control on the form and navigating it to an Excel spreadsheet. When I
try this, I get a dialog asking if I'd like to open or save the
spreadsheet - the spreadsheet never appears embedded in the
application.

Has anyone else had issues with this?

you have a couple of options here, VSTO, OWC, 3rd party such as aspose,
excel writer, softartisan etc. I believe most if not all of these products
allow you to host the spreadsheet in the windows application.
