Hi

Is it possible to build a WebForm that looks like or has a built in Excel spreadsheet in ASP.net VB.net 2010.
The idea is to have anything that looks just like an Excel spreadsheet so that Excel users can
update data to our central Office in an online Excel type environment.
At the very least could I use a GridView and paste Excel ranges to it.
Thanks

Hi,
We have already worked on related project bt we only find following ways.

You can use Far Point Spread, you may find details on following link:

Alternatively you can use silverlight controls to do so but you may have to work a lot to accumplish this.

Thanks

As a VBA Devloper and a .NET devloper....I dont see this happening right now..Excel is a massive application that contains sophisticated code that enables macros, formulas, functions, merges, and I dont see the gridview in Asp.net coming anywhere close...maybe in the next release..I am sure MS is working hard on it..
