When you convert a spreadsheet to a web page, new interactive charts allow web users to perform in-depth analysis of the data in the chart.
July 8, 2017 — SpreadsheetConverter is an add-on to Microsoft Excel that converts spreadsheets to live, calculating web pages. The new version 9.2 recently became available at SpreadsheetConverter.com.
The new interactive charts allow visitors to use the mouse to tailor the chart to their needs. The direct interactivity helps them quickly understand the charts and analyze the underlying data in an entertaining way. They can focus on a certain data series or completely hide one or more data series.
“It’s so much easier to clean up the chart to find what you’re looking for. You can highlight the most interesting series by hovering your mouse above its label, or click on the label to hide a series that’s not important”, says Anna Winter, sales manager for SpreadsheetConverter.
The new Interactive Charts also support more flexible layouts – with/without axis, legends on top/bottom/right etc. They’ve got new capabilities like support for logarithmic axis and data labels.
“We have added support for custom solid colors in the chart area, legend, axis labels and grid-lines so you can give them a look that matches with your website theme”, says Winter.
Developers create web pages from Excel templates. If the spreadsheet contains a chart, it will be live also on the web page. Any change to the underlying data will cause the chart to update itself.
“You don’t have to change anything to use the new features. Just convert an Excel spreadsheet with a chart to a web page using the new version of the program and you get the new interactive charts automatically”, says Winter.
SpreadsheetConverter is available for free trial at spreadsheetconverter.com/buy/free-trial/. It creates web pages that are completely standalone, do not use Excel and run on all web servers. You only need Excel and the Spreadsheet Converter add-on for the actual conversion from spreadsheet to web page format. There is a one-time fee for the conversion program, with no extra fees per page, user or server. You may use the program and the web pages it creates for as long as you like. Full versions start at $127.
