    Linking excel chart to webpage

    Hey guys,
    Having a nightmare trying to link an Excel chart to my webpage and keep it updated from Excel.
    Canít be bothered with SharePoint Ė too hard.
    Just need to keep my sales team informed and a VERY simple solution for that Ė Iím less capable than I sound.
    Thanks!

    It's always easy to get data from a website and put into Excel.

    But you want to go the other way .... from Excel to Website.

    First of all, a website within your own "intranet", or network?
    Or a website online, such as a website on GoDaddy?

    It can be done manually, by exporting data to a file and then uploading that file.

    It cannot be done automatically unless you have some executable software package installed in your computer. A
    And then on the website end of it, the website needs to have the scripting at accept the external data and then display it.

    You can see where this becomes a problem ...

    Take this scenario:
    1) You have Excel on your computer at your desk.
    2) You do your data entry and store the data on your computer using Excel.
    3) Now you have some software that opens-up ports on the network that allow someone like me to access the data. Or you have software that pushes the data to a website and stores it there somehow. All of this is happening between your computer and the internet without using a browser.
    4) The security aspect of this is mind boggling.

    How secure is your network, how secure is the website itself?

    Tell me how much data it is, and how sensitive the data is.
