Hi, is there a way to have an excel file be interactive through a web browser and be able to save the changes without downloading the file and uploading it again?
If you can just tell me yes or no... it would be really helpfull.

Sorry its yes and no.

Excel as a wb page: no macros will work, if your sheet is a table you can edit it with Outlook-Word-Link.

If you link the Excel sheet through Access then you can build a database to receive changes and link the changes to a mirror Excel sheet, in affect making changes to the Excel sheet. The Web sheet though is not updated, you need to refresh the web page with the mirror. JSW
