1. Is there any Joomla extension which can allow an end-user to upload a spreadsheet which can be viewed on the website running Joomla 3.4.1 as http://www.acsf.cornell.edu/education/curricula/

  2. If not, I understand there may be PHP libraries/parsers which can take spreadsheet as an input and display its contents. Which ones integrate well with Joomla?


  • Not sure if this would work for you? docs.joomla.org/… Maybe this too extensions.joomla.org/extension/ari-docs-viewer

  • Side note: Not sure if you heard the news, but Joomla 3.4.5 patches a massive security risk. If you're on Joomla less than this version, please update immediately

  • Thanks johnny_s, The spreadsheet data needs to be sortable, but I will try the methods you suggested. Thank you for the links. Nov 6, 2015 at 2:04

1 Answer 1


Have you tried uploading the Excel to the site and then placing it in an iFrame? (menu type = system-wrapper) You would want to save it with Read Only privileges, etc. You could also do the iframe in a module.

Another option would be to convert to GDocs and load that iFrame.
