You can now display a Microsoft Excel workbook on your web page, such as your blog or SharePoint wiki page. Here's a step-by-step guide:
The workbook is stored in a public location in Windows Live SkyDrive, where you copy an HTML tag that you paste into the HTML of your blog or wiki page. That way, people can see the workbook without having to go to the SkyDrive folder.
Updates to the workbook are automatically reflected on the page where the workbook is embedded.
Note: The HTML tag for embedding the workbook displays the entire Excel workbook on your web page, but you can customize the display. You can also allow interactivity such as sorting, filtering, and typing in the embedded workbook. Changes made to the workbook on your web page are useful for what-if analysis and are not saved in the workbook that is stored in SkyDrive.
Before you can embed a workbook on your web page the workbook must be available to view publicly.
If you are creating a new workbook, there are two ways to store it publicly on Windows Live SkyDrive. One method is simplest if you are creating your workbook in the Excel desktop application; the other method is simple if you are creating a workbook in your web browser, in Excel Web App.
If you have an existing workbook that you want to embed on a web page, you can upload it to a public folder in your SkyDrive. Or, if it's already stored in a personal folder on your SkyDrive, you can move it to a public folder.
Create the workbook in the Excel desktop application, and then save it in a public folder on SkyDrive.
For more information about saving Microsoft Office documents on SkyDrive see Store a file for Office Web Apps in Windows Live.
In Excel Web App
If the workbook is stored on your computer, do the following to upload it:
Note: If you have a lot of files to upload, click Install the upload tool. When the Windows Live upload tool is installed you will be able to select multiple files to upload.
If the workbook is stored in a personal folder on your SkyDrive, do the following to move it to a public folder:
Note If the folder already contains a workbook with the same file name as the workbook you are moving, that workbook will be replaced with the workbook you are moving. To prevent this from happening, rename the file. Click Cancel. Point to the workbook, click More, and click Rename. Then, type a new name, and click Save. Now you can proceed by repeating Step 2.
The HTML you copied from the Excel Web App page is an iframe tag, which is supported in many web authoring environments and blog services. The steps provided here work in some of the most popular blogging services, such as WordPress, Blogger, and TypePad.
Note: If you use a blogging service that does not support iframes in posts, consult your blogging service provider for assistance.
If you want to embed the workbook in a SharePoint wiki, you paste only the src portion of the tag into a Page Viewer Web Part. See the instructions below.
Note: In TypePad don't use the Quick Compose editor. Go to Blogs, click the name of your blog, and then click Compose, where you can switch from Rich Text to HTML editing.
By default, the entire workbook is displayed in the frame on your page. You can customize the display so that only a specific item such as a worksheet or chart is visible. You can also allow interactivity and typing in the frame. You customize the display by editing the tag in the HTML editor. For details, see Customize how your Excel workbook is embedded

Hi Yoshihiro, you're right, my fault. The links have been updated.
I had this working however uploaded a new file and all I can see is the icon which links to the file on SkyDrive.The problem seems to be that the embed code is now different. it inserts this line in there "embedicon.aspx" insted of the full document.
I just created an excel sheet online and the embed code worked fine so it seems to be isolated to uploaded documents.
Can you double-check that the files you're uploading and trying out are saved as .XLSX files?
Files saved in the .XLS format, used in Excel 2003 and earlier, can't be embedded online -- instead you will just get an embedded icon that links to the file.
There are a bunch of ways to get an .XLSX file. The simplest, if you've already got an .XLS file on SkyDrive, is to open the file up in the Excel Web App and choose "Edit in Browser". The app will let you pick a name for your converted workbook, then open up the converted .XLSX file in the Excel Web App editor.
From the Excel 2007 or 2010 client, you can also get an .XLSX file with "save as" -- it's the default file type. If you're running an earlier version of Excel, you may be able to use the Office Compatibility Pack (www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx).
