Embed Excel into html page using IE

Hello All

I tried to embed Excel sheet into HTML page by following command:

<iframe src="Tmp.XLS" width="100%" height="500"></iframe>

and it works, showing Excel sheet inside the page, but there is
no way I can save the Excel sheet after it has been change. The
Excel menu is not active and the system is not asking whether I
want to save the changes or not.

Is there any way I can show menu bar in embeded Excel or maybe I
should use some other way to show Excel file inside my html page?

Thanks in advance

For some limited definition of "works", maybe. Note that in a www
context, not every user will have MS Excel.

Save it where? Where to you want users to save the changes? If it's to
their own filesystem, I'd think the context menu might be of help, so
I'd start there.
The Excel menu is not active and the system is not asking whether I

That's surprising. If I load an MS Word document in MSIE, and hit the
backspace key to go back in the history, I instead edit the document,
erasing a character or tab. When I then click my back button, I get a
"save document" prompt. [1]

If you want users to edit the table, you're looking at a more
complicated application. It'd involve server-side scripts and HTML tables.

[1] More MSIE weirdness. I just tested this, to make sure I was
remembering correctly. When I selected a link to an MS Word document,
MSIE loaded the document in the browser window, where I could edit it.
At the same time, the MSIE logo icon in the title bar -- the blue "e",
changed to the Firefox logo! When I went back to the previous
document, the blue "e" returned. Strange strange beast.

Yes, when the document is contained directly in the browser. But if it's in
an IFRAME?

That's why I wrote "That's suprising..." and not "That's wrong...."
I'm afraid I don't have time to create a new test case for this. But
if you're that curious, knock yourself out.

Thank you for all sugestions. I think that I will go for HTML tables.
That look the most promissing.

In the good old days I believe people were using the arcane technology which came to be known as COM+ to embed other application's document in their own document.

Apparently even OpenOffice could do that.

With "normal" SWF HTML there's an EMBED tag nested within an OBJECT tag. How can I check which tag is actually displaying the SWF? I'm using CSS on them and the style on the OBJECT affects the EMBED tag so I'm going to use some code to correct it but I can't tell which tag is responsible for the display. Andrew Poulos
