Integrate?

Kinda - open ended... for you mean provide a this as the means for editing dataobjects all at once in a spreasheet like view? using excel spreadtsheets as the database? using a spreadsheet functionality like formulas, graphs and pivot tables?

I am curious as I'm making a spreadsheet view at the moment that may well become a module...

Embed? What I would really like to do is save an Excel spreadsheet as an image, which I don't think can be done, and then just display that image on one of my pages.

So I have this Excel spreadsheet with all of these results and I can't place it seamlessly into a SilverStripe page.

Does that help?

I'm sure that there is probably a better way, but you could just save the spreadsheet as a pdf then open it in Photoshop or a similar program and save as a jpg file.

Ah, you had to go and be all simple and brilliant about it :-) Now I get it. Good call.

Thanks!

I was going to suggest Ctrl+Alt+PrtSc - but I figured that would be a touch insulting... :)
