  • What version of SharePoint are you using?  If you've using MOSS Enterprise, then Excel Services should be an option for you.  This link is a fairly good one on learning about its capabilities http://www.devx.com/dotnet/Article/32908/1954

    Not true as Excel Services comes only with the *Enterprise* version of MOSS 2007.

    lankie: Your reply doesn't say whether you have WSS 3.0 SP2; MOSS 2007 Standard SP2 or MOSS 2007 Enterprise SP2
