Experts,

I have a question about my current dashboard that is Excel format.  The dashboard that I am creating has multiple sheets that contains charts with list boxes and option buttons.  At work we use Sharepoint and my director would like to share the dashboard on the server so everyone can access.  I know that you can create dashboards on sharepoint , but what I am trying to do is keep the exact layout and functionality of my current spreadsheet.  Is this possible?

Thanks

Hi,

if you're only thinking to share the excel workbook that you're using like a simple file, then this is very easy - you can upload it to a document library and announce to everyone that they can see it there.
If, on the other hand, you would like to actually see the content of the file displayed in the sharepoint page itself, you will need to check if the SharePoint you have is enterprise or standard version - in enterprise you have several web parts that can display the file very nice (excel web access web part)

Depends on what exactly you would like to see and how you want to be able to use it.
If this is going in the direction of what you would like to do, please provide more information and I will try to explain in more details.

Hope this helps

Sorry for the delay..  I just spoke with my IT guy and he said that we are using sharepoint 3.0.  Also that if we uploaded it some how it would be terrible slow.  Any Ideas for other options?

Sorry for not responding; I think I lost the notification with your comment.
Just wondering, why would it be the option of uploading the file slow? Is the file very large?
