    Is it possible to display an Excel file on a page as a table? I have an Excel based phone directory that I would like to read and display on a page.

    TIA

    Thanks that's what I thought but the systems is so complex I wasn't sure if there was something built in that I hadn't read about yet.

    It never occurred to anyone at Sitefinity that there would ever be a demand to import data but there is as of today a great blog post on exactly this with promise of a scheduled webinar to go even further.

    http://www.sitefinity.com/blogs/tim-williamsons-blog/2013/11/20/importing-data-into-custom-modules

    They do however already have an export feature available now with module builder not much use without the import but for an additional $3999 you can synchronize data entered manually between two or more sites but still no import so I do not recommend the add on but I do recommend signing up for the webinar.

    Don't you hate when the forum double posts?

    HI there
    For me ,i usually display or read excel files using a third party tool which supports to read or process excel files directly.It is really helpful to do that with a fine tool.You can also try to add one of them.But i want to know that if there is a powerful excel tool which supports to work with sitefinity.Thanks a lot
