Uploading spreadsheets into Expression Web

I am trying to upload a spreadsheet into expression web, but I need to have the filters for the columns available. When I try to insert a spreadsheet it tells me that "my file is already in use. Select a new name or close the file in use by another application." I have carefully done this. I have closed the document, renamed the file and loaded Expression web but with same result. Can someone please help me with this?

RE: Uploading spreadsheets into Expression Web

Hi Ida, thanks for your query and apologies for the delay in responding. Your requirement for the filters to be available throws a spanner into the works, I'm afraid. It's easy enough to save the spreadsheet as an HTML file but as you have probably already seen this strips out the filtering functionality.

However, have a read of the material at this link. You have to use a third-party website but what you want to do is achievable.


Hope this helps,

Expression Web tip:

Protecting Email Addresses

If you put mailto: links on your web page, spammers can crawl your web site and 'pick up' the e-mail addresses quite easily.

One tip to deal with this is to NOT use mailto: links at all. Simply write the e-mail address, and don't link it.

Spammers can get these e-mail addresses too, so one thing you can do to stop the majority of spammers getting just plain text e-mail addresses of your web pages is to use the following code:


This code will appear correctly on your web page and allows users to copy and paste it into their email client, but isn't seen by the automatic harvesters that spammers use.
