    Question Excel over the web

    Could anybody offer any general advice for using Excel documents in a website. Excel viewer withstanding!

    Thanks in advance.

    If your visitor is using Internet Explorer and has Excel on their computer then the file may display in the browser window. If they don't have Excel or are using a different browser then the file will be offered for download instead.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    That is true. I intend to offer the Excel Viewer for download on the site which will sove that problem. I am just having a hard time thinkng of how to direct a visitor to a particular page in spreadsheet and even further than that to a particular cell on the page.
