Embedded, Programmable Microsoft Excel Platform
Import Microsoft Excel documents and preserve complete formatting. Interact with the data in Spread within your application, then export your spreadsheets to Microsoft Excel for portability and distribution to your external customers. Spread supports the current versions of Excel, and supports multiple Excel file formats, including xlsx, xls, comma-delimited (csv), and text (txt).

Dashboard - Data Visualization
Allow your data to tell stories through the data visualization functionality provided in Spread. Use Sparklines to provide small, focused cell-level charts to provide more meaning to your data.

In Spread, the Camera shape object provides a live view of a range of cells, including any values, formatting, shapes, charts, or other content. If the range of cells is updated or modified through user interaction, or programmatic updates, the Camera shape immediately refreshes to include the changes. Ranges with different column widths and row heights can be arranged together in the same sheet without affecting one another to create a customized report or interactive dashboard.  Additional data visualization is provided in Spread through: Chart Support, Conditional Format, Filtering, and Grouping.
