If you do want it to be editable, then I have no idea.



This could turn into a viewer issue (at least partially), depending on 
what Steve has in mind.  There are four levels of embedding I can 
think of:


1.  Static (data is copied in once, does not change if the spreadsheet 
changes).  There've been a few responses on the list along those lines.


2.  Dynamic (the LyX doc contains a non-interactive table, but it 
automagically updates if the spreadsheet changes).  With other programs, 
this typically requires DDE (on Windows), but it could probably be faked 
with a script that the user would run manually.  The script would have 
to crank up the spreadsheet and dump the relevant table(s) to some sort 
of intermediate file(s) (CSV?).


3.  Static link (user sees a link in the LyX doc, clicks it to open the 
spreadsheet in an external program).  I doubt this is what Steve wants, 
since embedding links in LyX docs is well known.


4.  Dynamic link (user sees a table in the LyX doc, and can interact 
with it, making changes in the spreadsheet).  This would typically occur 
with the user reading the finished product (PDF, DVI) in a viewer, not 
reading it in LyX, so you get into issues of whether the viewer program 
supports this sort of embedding.  For instance, if you export the 
document in HTML and view it in a browser, I think there are browser 
plugins that let you edit a spreadsheet in situ (although I confess I've 
never done it).

If all you need is row+column data from an excel spreadsheet, you could also 
use the perl module Spreadsheet::ParseExcel

Hi all,

How can I embed a spreadsheet (MS Excel I assume) into a LyX or LaTeX

What do you want them to look like? Do you want them to be editable? If 
not, then export to csv and you can use the import filter.


If you do want it to be editable, then I have no idea.

Hi Steve,

in Excel

* mark the cells you wnat to show in your document
* export marked area to eps

in LyX
--
* import eps graphic

So you have a scalable graphic and no problems with bitmap resolution
