Office Web apps to Embed editable excel in MVC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our requirement is to embed editable Excel in MVC application. 

    Is it possible to directly embed Excel in MVC application using Office Web apps?

  • Hi Velvizhi,

    >>Is it possible to directly embed Excel in MVC application using Office Web apps? <<

    Excel application is designed for user interactive on the client computer. It is not supported to embed in a web page.

    To modify the spreadsheets in a browser, we need to use Office web app, Office Online. And to integrate edit spreadsheet in the web site, we need to use WOPI. You can get more detail about it from blog below:
    Introducing WOPI

    And here is a samlpe project for your reference:

    If you still have problem about WOPI, you can reopen a new thread in the forum below:
