    Hello,

    This is a pre-sale question. We're asked to allow corporate users to view online existing Excel files that contain multiple sheets.

    We know viewing is possible when the Excel file contains only one sheet.

    Does anyone know whether this is possible to do when the imported Excel file contains more than one sheet (in our case more than 10)?

     

    Thanks much in advance.

    Hello Chanan,

    It's possible to show multi-sheet workbook in all of the Telerik web spreadsheet controls: MVC, AJAX, Silverlight. Could you specify the technology you want to use,as this is the forum for RadSpreadProcessing, which is non-UI specific library? Have you found any specific problems when trying to visualize your workbooks? We may redirect this thread to the specific product group if needed.

    Regards,

    Thanks, Boby.

    We actually own an old ASP.NET AJAX package, which does not include the RadSpreadProcessing control. Prior to upgrading our package I wanted to be sure this new control would allow our client to view multi-sheet Excel files.

    We were assured that this is possible, so we'll proceed with upgrade.

    Thanks again.

    Hello Chanan ,

    Glad to hear that. Just a small correction - RadSpreadProcessing is a non-visual component for generation, editing and conversion of spreadsheet documents. What you should be looking for after the upgrade is RadSpreadsheet for ASP.NET AJAX.

    Thanks again.

    Our client is interested in merely VIEWING online existing Excel files stored on its web server without the need to download these files locally.

    Each user is to view certain files according to his/her portal permissions.

    Hi Chanan,

    You can see how to load an Excel file into RadSpreadsheet for ASP.NET AJAX in the following live demo: Import/Export an Excel File.

    RadSpreadsheet is not a CMS or CRM system and the functionality for managing the user roles/permissions should be written/handled by the developer developing with the control.

    Best regards,

    Thanks Rumen,

    I've already been directed to that demo page and tested it. Works perfectly.

    Permissions are handled separately, of course.
