html excel grid

Is there a way to create a grid (like excel) in html? The grid would have to be able to accept formulas like excel. The problem is that the client machine's don't have excel. Is there some type of control or activeX control?

No. It's a web page, not a spreadsheet.

You could write a java applet, maybe. If you want something with the functionality of Excel, this will be a long, complex project, suitable for a programming team. Like the one that created Excel. ;-)

If they don't have Excel, they don't have Excel. The ActiveX controls simply call Excel on the user's machine. If it ain't there, they don't do anything.

webwoman is correct.  the cost of developing somethinlike this would probably be 5 or 6 times the cost of buying a copy of excel, and would not have the reliability, or full functionality of Excel.  

If you need to do a spread sheet app use a spread sheet, not a web page.
