SpreadsheetConverter creates web pages that mimic the behavior of Excel spreadsheets. Depending on the requirements, the calculation of the formulas in the spreadsheet can be performed either in the web browser or on a web server. The converted web page itself looks exactly the same regardless of what flavor of SpreadsheetConverter you used to create it.
If the spreadsheet formulas are calculated in the web browser, the whole spreadsheet can be placed very neatly in one single package sent to the browser.
SpreadsheetConverter iPhone/Android is a specialized app-builder that converts an Excel spreadsheet for iPhone and Android smartphones. Mobile calculators can be used also when the smartphone is offline, and your electronic forms are automatically stored until the phone is online again.
This developer is using Excel to create a membership application form, and previewing the form on a Sony Xperia smartphone.
You only need basic Excel skills to develop powerful web forms.
Connect the form to our forms processing options – receive each form by e-mail, or saved in a database hosted by us for later retrieval. No programming or IT skills needed.
If the formulas are calculated on the web server, the web page consists of two or more separate parts, a standard web page that is downloaded to the browser and one or more packages of programming code that reside on the server.
What flavor of SpreadsheetConverter you select depends on your server environment:
SpreadsheetConverter ASP.NET generates a single ASPX page and an optional Code-Behind file for each Excel spreadsheet that it converts. SpreadsheetConverter HTML is included in SpreadsheetConverter ASP.NET.
Many spreadsheets contain business-critical information. In the wrong hands, the same information can be used to create extensive damage to your business.
In our server-based flavors like Node.js, the formulas are executed directly on the web server, which makes them inaccessible to intruders. You can calculate your markups, interests or salary increases knowing that no-one can access the formulas or their values on the server.
Still concerned about the difference between client-based and server-based calculations? Just interested in the technical details? No problem.
