Adding Excel Information to a Web Page

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated July 27, 2015)

When you are creating Web output in Excel, you are not limited to creating entire Web pages. Indeed, you can add your Excel-generated HTML output to an existing Web page, if desired. To add to an existing Web page you use much the same process that you follow in creating a Web page from scratch. The difference is that you will need to select the cell range you want added to an existing Web page; this is the key that tips off Excel as to what you are doing. You can follow these general steps:

  1. Load the workbook you want to use.
  2. Select the cell range you want added to an existing Web page.
  3. Display the Save As dialog box and make sure the Save As Type drop-down is set to Web Page.
  4. Make sure you choose the Selection radio button in the middle of the dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  5. Figure 1. The Save As dialog box.

  6. Specify any other settings, as desired.
  7. Click on the Save button. Excel recognizes you are about to overwrite an existing Web page with only a limited number of cells and displays a dialog box to that effect.
  8. Click on the Add To File button.
