  • I would like to be able to display and edit an Excel sheet from sharepoint, is this possible? I know I can view but being able to edit right from the screen would be ideal.

  • hello! how different is this compared to using File Viewer web part?

  • this is very helpful, except how do you refresh the embedded spreadsheet. i am making changes in the browser and the desktop app and not seeing them appear in the embedded version. i understand that i can not make & save changes via the embedded version. i’ve also tried refreshing the webpage and clicking the icon “Refresh all data connections”. eventually, i do see the changes, but it can take a long time.
