Trouble displaying Webpage (Excel Spreadsheet)

Hello. I have been having some trouble displaying an Excel spreadsheet as a webpage.

I have tried with the “normal” webpage widget and embedded.

Normal Webpage Widget:

Link: file:///C:/Users/user.name/Documents/IndividualProductivity.htm ( I tried with 3 /// and 2 // in the beginning )

Error Message in preview: “file’s server IP address could not be found.”

Embedded Widget:

Code:

<iframe width="1920" height="1080" src="file://c:/users/user.name/documents/IndividualProductivity.htm" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen><iframe>

Preview: Just a black screen

Version 2.0.4

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi there,

Sorry but I am not completely clear what you’re trying to do here - if you embed a local file:/// URL then it is unlikely you will be able to see that in the CMS preview (browsers don’t typically have access to embed local files when accessing via another URL).

It might well work on the Player though, assuming that file structure exists on the Player as well as on your machine.
