    I don't have the necessary knowledge for this, but this site seems possible if I understand you correctly.

    does the user have to interact with the popup or just see the spreadsheet?

    also, do you have access to server-side scripting like php
    IF I DID GOOD THROW ME A REP POINT

    You need both Internet Explorer and Excel to be able to have a web page pop up an Excel document. To other browsers (and even IE if Excel isn't installed) that is just another unknown file format. You would need to convert it to HTML or PDF if you want all of your visitors to be able to see it.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
