Embedding a Range of Any Excel Workbook in a Web Page or Blog Post
Back in February of 2011, I was in Redmond for my annual pilgrimage to Microsoft. This is always a great trip, because I get to provide feedback to the people who actually are building the next version of Excel. Plus, I get to catch up with many friends from the Excel MVP community. On this trip, I was able to use a new feature that is available to you now.
