Chapter 32. Using Excel on the Web > Exploring Excel's Web Capabilities

Exploring Excel's Web Capabilities

Hypertext markup language (HTML) format and Web compatibility are a major focus for Office XP. One way this is demonstrated is in the improvement of Excel's tools for saving a worksheet as HTML—not only can the worksheet be posted to or used as a Web page, it can be reedited as an XLS-format worksheet in Excel, even after being saved in HTML. This is because HTML is now a companion file format to the standard XLS spreadsheet format, enabling the user to go from viewing a worksheet as a Web page to editing it as a worksheet, and back again. You don't even need to have Excel installed to edit Excel Web pages that are saved in HTML format—all you need is browser software, such as Internet Explorer with the spreadsheet component installed.

Note

Changes to the data from the browser program can be saved only with the Save As command. Even then, each time you make changes that you want to save, you'll need to perform another Save As operation. (If you have Excel, of course, you can open the file in Excel and perform a regular save.)
