Beginners question

I apologize for the simplicity of this question, but I am unable to find an online demo that would show me how to do this. I am curious if Cells can support the following scenario:


1. We create a spreadsheet (basically, a template) in excel. Save it to a common location (ie database, file, etc)
2. Our users want to open this template and fill in their numbers in their browser. Once they are done they click our “save” button which submits it to the server
3. On the server we suck the numbers out of their copy of the spreadsheet and do whatever with it.

I think the product can do this, but I am seeing mostly read-only demos. Any insight is appreciated!

Thank you in advance,
John

Thank you for your response. I looked at the documentation you provided, it seems a bit overwhelming. Please understand I am in “you have a few hours to research this” mode, so I cannot read in too much detail - or at least as deep as I want as I have been tasked with researching a few products. I viewed the online demos, and found a couple where if I double click on the cells it appears I can edit them, but it reverts back to the original value upon exiting the cell. Can you give me a high level answer if this is possible?
1. Create an excel sheet
2. Display it on a web page for editing (no charts or anything fancy - a few named ranges and calculations)
3. Allow the user to save the spreadsheet and handle in code behind saving it off.

I do appreciate your time - your familiarity with Aspose will save me hours. :slight_smile:

Thanks,
John

Interesting… I see different behavior in Chrome and IE. The Edit/Read only works in IE but not in Chrome (which is what I was using the first time around). Do you support all major browsers?

I just found the “submit edit result and recalculate formulas” button. I didn’t realize it could do this - what a great product!
