Update: See the end of this post for the newest how-to-embed info.
What better way to explain how something works than by actually showing how it works? Below is a self-fulfilling prophecy: An embedded presentation showing exactly how to ...embed a presentation using Office Web Apps.
Pretty nifty, eh? Think about what you can use this for: Sharing vacation or family photos or sending information, sharing financial information with your spouse or even your banker. And you never know: This may end up being a new way for prospective employers to see what you know...and the cool way you to how to present it.
I wanted to try this for myself so I downloaded this Vehicle Loan Payment Calculator from Templates site, added it to my SkyDrive and here it is, all embedded and nice to look at:
(Note that because this Excel template is wider than the space here allows, you can click the lower right icon to open it in a full screen.)
And...here's how I did that (it really was easy-peasy).
Embed an Excel spreadsheet on a web page.
One thing gave me a teensy-weensy little spot of trouble: The instructions are to create or upload your spreadsheet (or presentation) in your Public folder. I didn't HAVE a public folder and so I needed to create one. It's very simple and you'll see what I mean when you try this for yourself which I KNOW you will be doing because it's free AND it's useful AND it's fun, to boot:
You can also embed a PowerPoint presentation and the directions are almost identical: Embed a PowerPoint presentation on a web page using Office Web Apps.
New! How-tos, examples, and ideas

If you add &allowinteractivity=1 to your IFRAME URL for Excel, we will be able to use your awesome calculator. :)
Thanks for the heads up. Figured it out: It has to have the &AllowTyping=True as well as &Allowinteractivity=True.
Should be working now
This is great, I just wish the full screen mode, especially with PowerPoint, would simply expand the presentation instead of launch a new browser window. Also, their needs to be some way to play the slideshow.
Crabby, How do I de-embed a chart from an excel page. Thanks
Great post! I’ve bookmarked your blog. Best Regards!
Would like to see something like &CloneFile so that the Web Applets could treat sites hosting MS-Office content as if they were a temnplate library, and do actual R/W using their own Skydrive storage.
