Display Excel in Web Browser

The code here should load my excel in web browser in form.  

WebBrowser1.Navigate(System.Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.MyDocuments) & "\testABC.xlsx")

Open in new window


However it asks if i want to save open or cancel.  If i open it opens it into xcel.  I want it just to load into the webbrowser with no alerts.  It works fine with a pdf file.

I believe this is down to your Browser and not your code or excel.

Your browser does not know how to interpret the excel file so passes it to the OS to deal with.
There is a plugin that allows your browser to open PDF files which is why that works.

As an alternative you can save your excel file as a web page by changing the file type when you use File->Save-As.
