We have an Excel spreadsheet that references/updates data from an external source (Macro-based).

Is there a way to publish that to a website/HTML so that it shows via a browser inclusive of the auto updates in Excel?

Thanks. The second link is helpful and I see the option to: "AutoRepublish ever time this workbook is saved", but how does/will that work if the spreadsheet isn't saved, but rather if it is just auto-updated from the external feed/source/macro?

Is there a way to have it auto publish every, say, minute?

why would you do that?
if the AutoRepublish feature publishes the excel upon save, then every time the macro runs and updates the spreadsheet, save it on the server.
that way you always have an updated copy of the spreadsheet on the server and also that will trigger the AutoRepublish.

The external source data is a feed that is on a local workstation/not server, it is used for business-specific purposes so cannot be "shared" or always saved, especially since it is a large worksheet.

The worksheet is not saved everytime the macro is updated. The macro calls the external feed, updates the value and continues.
