Updated: See the bottom of this post for the latest Office how-tos on embedding Excel and PowerPoint files on web pages.
OK, so you read yesterday about how to embed an interactive Excel file on your web page using the Excel Office Web App to do it. But somehow, it is NOT being interactive (although it is from within the Excel program, both on the SkyDrive and on your desktop. Example: Be.ow is a debt snowball calculator. You enter each debtor, how much you owe, what the APR is, the minimum payment, etc. and Excel automatically calculates for you how long it will take to pay off the debt and how much you'll have paid total, including interest charges.
My goal for having this on my web page is so that you start, right away, on taking better charge of your finances. But, if you try to enter your OWN data...you can't:

Oh, and if you like the template debt calculator I used, you can find it here, on the Templates site.

I often will protect worksheets in my Excel files and unlock cells that I want to enable edits. Will embedding Excel document honor these settings? If not, that should be considered in future release.
Followed with awe at what could be achieved.
I suppose someone has already told you of the typo in you code fix.
Should read: &AllowInteractivity=True&AllowTyping=True
