Want to view microsoft excel file in Outsystems
Question

Hi All,

We have a requirement where we want to view excel file types in outsystems.

This file will be hosted in one of our aws s3.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Tanay,

You can use Office Viewer from Microsoft with Html Iframe tag .

Hope it works.

Hi Tanya,

Maybe silly question, but why not use Excel for that?

Thanks Daniel,

Currently we  have option to download the file and as you suggested we are using excel only, but now we want to have a preview kind of feature where instead of having 2 steps to just view, we want to view it in browser.

 

Hi Tanay,

Are you developing Web or Mobile app?

Hi Tanay,

1) File preview in read only mode.

2) Maximum file size is 10MB.
