How do I atttach an Excel workbook to a HTML page NOT AS A LINK.

I thought this would be quite simple but all I ever see is it being done via a link.

Do you want visitors to view the contents on the page, or edit it?
You have a few options.

You can use an iframe like this:
<iframe src="workbook.XLS" width="100%" height="500"></iframe>
Changes to the file won't save.
This is similar to using Skydrive and right clicking on the file and selecting embed. It creates the iframe link for you. I believe dropbox has a similar feature.

Another option is to convert to PDF and embed that as an object. Again this is view only.

You can upload the Excel file to something like Google Docs and share that link. Visitors can edit it if you allow, or only view.

Another suboptimal option is to recreate the spreadsheet using html tables with some decent styling.

Just save your workbook as a webpage (via Save As), then incorporate that into your site.  Need more information to go on if there is more interaction to be had.
