If you put a link to a spreadsheet on a page ad the browser recognizes the extension, it will open excell in browser space.  If it does not recognize teh file time or excell in not installed as a browser helper app, it will open a dialog to ask the user if they want to download it.

Following object tag will embed a spreadsheet in a HTML page:

<object classid="CLSID:0002E510-0000-0000-C000-000000000046">
       <param name="DisplayTitleBar" value="false"></object>

You can get more info in the following page:

Hi
ASP stands for Active Server pages . Now I realize you are talking about a  static HTMl Page to show Excel Sheet.
To learn more about it step by step pls visit www.w3schools.com and choose ASP.
Or take the example of satish and paste into a HTMl page under the Head Tag , should work.

joncolby,

If you havent used asp before, (but know that you will need to use it to some extent) I would suggest using AspGrid at http://www.aspgrid.com/
I've used it myself and it has all the edit and update features you are looking for. You can use the examples with your Excel file and you should be plug and go. You will see that its very extendable for you to play with and make nicer as you go, but it will also get you up and going very quickly.

Keep it simple.
