Attempting to display the attached workbook in a SP list; what is the best way to do so, so that conditional formatting/named fields/etc... are editable via the excel services plugin and displayed correctly?

Here is the best approach


Place your xlsx file in a document libray

Make sure you have XLS services are running.

Add that location of the library to the trusted sites .

Create a page or add the" XLS Viewer webpart"  to your current page and point to that webpart to that file.


The End.

Best of luck.

Will I be able to do all those steps without complete admin rights?

If so, I'll need a walk-through for:
1. Add that location of the library to the trusted sites
2. Create a page or add the" XLS Viewer webpart"  to your current page and point to that webpart to that file.

You will need admin rights for [1] but not [2]


[1] http://blogs.technet.com/b/wbaer/archive/2007/02/14/configuring-trusted-file-locations-for-excel-services.aspx

[2] From the site actions Select Edit Page - > , you are in Edit mode , - > Click on Add (webpart ) and select Excel web viewer  -> Edit the web part properties , and select the file to be the file you want to show .

that is all

There is extra settings as in if you want to show a part of the file ( use name manager to create names ) and then use that name in the zone .


Best of luck.

I was never able to get the SP admins to add a new trusted location. They stated that they were not adding any new trusted locations until the migration to SP 2010 was complete.

I'll assume this solution would have work had they been cooperative. Please award points.
