I'm looking for a php/javascript/jquery based library which I can drop into my web application that will provide excel-like spreadsheet editing capabilities.

I'm looking for something fairly simple to implement, that supports your usual spread-sheet like functions, though I am specifically looking for Excel's "expanding a selection" features and some basic formula capabilities.

jqgrid is not a spreadsheet, as far as I can tell it does not have any facilities for having the user add/remove rows and columns, doesn't support formulas, doesn't support row resizing, doesn't support loading/saving to csv or some similar format. It can load from XML but from what I can see there's no way to save.

It's an interesting question.  This sounds like something that would be very expensive.  Any chance you might want to use Google Apps?  There might also be some wrapper for a part of the open-office applications.

I'd consider using a google product - but it needs to integrate fairly seamlessly into my existing web application. Can you do that with a google spreadsheet?

I never tried integrating anything Google into another site, except for Google Search -- and that worked great.  But as far as a skin for the look and feel of another site, I do not know.  There might be a paid option without ads or something like that.

I think I may end up going with the jqGrid option, looking into it more I think I can store the data in JSON format. I'll just have to add my own facilities for adding/removing columns.
