Upload a spreadsheet to WordPress

These instructions will show you how to convert a spreadsheet to a live web calculator and upload it to WordPress.

The WordPress Plugin to Import Spreadsheets from Microsoft Excel makes it easy to upload converted calculators and web forms to WordPress and embed spreadsheets in any post or page.

Before you upload a spreadsheet to WordPress you convert it to web format with SpreadsheetConverter. Then you upload the result of the conversion to WordPress in the form of a ZIP file. This page contains the instructions on how to upload the converted file with the WordPress plugin.
