Excel Mashup, Java & HTML 5

Filed under: .NET & Excel — Dennis M Wallentin @ 3:11 pm

Microsoft has recently launched a new site that target how to create rich and interactive data mashups in Excel for use on the web. Technically speaking, we use the programming language JavaScript to interact with embedded Excel Web Apps’ objects.

For basic and small projects we can use auto generated JavaScript. For more advanced solution we may use the Excel Service JavaScript library to make rich data mashups using data from your embedded workbooks.

I find it very interesting but instead of making a write up myself I decided to link to J-K Pietersen’s excellent article about Excel mashup: Embedding Excel files on your website

For more information You can navigate to the start page at Microsoft’s new portal: Excel Mashup

Other blogg articles on the subject (I suspect many more to come!):

To learn and to exchange knowledge with other developers You may visit Microsoft’s Q&A forum for Excel Web Apps.

If I allow myself to speculate I guess much of that we see now will be part of the next release of Excel.

At the same time it’s an indication about what we must learn, at least has basic knowledge about, Java and HTML5. Are You surprised?

Kind regards,



  1. Hi Dennis,
