When the Embed code for the Excel Web App posted here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel/embed-an-excel-spreadsheet-on-a-web-page-FX102602478.aspx
is placed on my public web page, it doesn't work. I copied the Embed code and pasted it into an HTML module on my public web page. The table displays, but Filtering doesn't work. The drop-down arrows next to the column headers do not display.

It is not a bug, the code that is shown is wrong, it shows..
" target="_new" rel="nofollow"><iframe width="400" height="560" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"
528&AllowInteractivity=False&kip=1"></iframe" target="_new" rel="nofollow">>
You need to change the False to True after Allowinteractivity.
Should be this
I was playing around with this last week, I do hope they will make a way to allow you to embed from spreadsheets in office365, that would be kind of cool.
Hope this helps
I don't need an answer to this question. I know it doesn't work. Just wanted to post it as a bug. I have submitted to Feedback as a request -- The public website should support MSFT Web Apps.
Thanks for the information. I hadn't taken a close look at the Embed code itself to verify that it was correct (just assumed that the example would be correct).
Not sure about your statement though? In fact, you can embed the spreadsheets. You just can't do it from Office 365. You have to put the spreadsheet into SkyDrive, then you can embed it from there using the code given to you by clicking on the Embed link over on the right. Use the Insert HTML module in the public website.
That is what I saying, I don't like that I can only use a spreadsheet on the Skydrive. Now if you could do that from a spreadsheet that was not public, but in your office365 folder, then you could have a great way of getting current infomation onto your website, while the data stayed protected. Take for example if you had a spread sheet with all your products and prices, or sales charts that you might want the public to see, but not gain access to.
I do hope that the good folks at MS look at this,it would be a great way to add value to the public website.
BTW have you tried an embedded powerpoint slide show, again, that would be a useful addition.
I don't quite understand your statement. The data on the Skydrive spreadsheet is protected. It can be viewed by the public (hence, you can embed it on a public website), but it cannot be edited. The spreadsheet cannot be downloaded, and the location is not easily discerned from the public web page code. So, I'm not sure what your concerns are as they related to "protecting the data".
Embedding a SkyDrive PowerPoint is the same as the spreadsheet. It works very slick and easy. I even like the viewer layout.
Thanks for the great answer SamSBook!
I wish what you said was true, but it is not. The document can be downloaded, and the entire contents of the folder can be viewed, and any documents can be downloaded by anyone if you put an embedded webapp on a public site.
Let me show you how
Follow this link and look at the neat body mass index calculator it shows
Now this is an example of why you want to share with the public, but not the whole sheet.
OK, that is all I want to share, I do not wish the public to know any more than what they see in the calculator.
BUT at the bottom where it says Excel Web App, on the far right click the button for full screen.
Now there is a button to allow the public to download your work. Also notice now that they can see your constants page, which have information you don't want to share.
Now at the top of that same full screen page click on the name of the document https://skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Blog%20posts/Excel%5E_Embed%5E_BMI%20Calculator.xlsx?cid=20f065afc1acdb2e&sc=documents and as you can see it will take you straight to the Skydrive public folder where now all your documents are visible, and in fact if you look at it, you can even embed any their document in your website now, just click on one, then click embed.
As for my concern about the data, let me give you just one more example, lets say I have a chart with sales for the year, and profit for the year. Many companies make that available, but that is all I want to show, the 3 sheets that it draws on I don't want to share, just like above, you only want the BMI calculator to show. If the sheet were on my Skydrive anyone could as I have shown, download it and get access to all the raw data that was used in the chart, that I don't want them to see.
BTW you had originally said you can protect it even in Skydrive, but you can't, you can only embed from a public folder, and no permissions can be set on them, they are wide open.
Isn't that how it's supposed to work? If you can set permissions at the folder level, you only put files in that folder that you want to share. The whole point of sharing is that you want people to see your public files, isn't it? Private files you keep in a private folder. Why would it matter if people can download a copy of a file you're displaying on a web site? I get the concern about revealing data on linked sheets, but if that's an issue, paste special values only to another file and display that without the raw data.
As far as I can tell, Google Docs offers the same options on embedded pdf's (download etc) but doesn't allow anonymous access to other files you share there. It's surprising that MS is more open about shared docs but they're relative newcomers to cloud applications so that may change.
