I want to create a simple website that holds the following functionality:

- It should display an excel-file that I have created myself. Is it possible to upload it and display a certain worksheet within the file on the webpage?

- Next to that I would like a second page that is only visible for an administrator. Here I would like the functionality to update the excelsheet. Is that possible?

You can definitely do that in DNN! I made a video that demonstrates the permissions capabilities within DNN. You can find that video here 

And you can easily upload documents (excel, word, ppt) via the Digital Asset Manager or the HTML Module.

Thanks for your reaction!
My main question still remains though: is it possible to display the content of the excelsheet in the webpage? So for instance a selection of the first worksheet, say A1:G20, is displayed on a webpage. I know it's possible to create HTML using Excel, so I am wondering if there's a way to do this in DNN.

DNN Platform is extendet with modules, Providers and Skins.  By Default this is possible, but it could Need that you Need a custom module.  Wit would be possible to create any Office Reader or write a Provider to connect to the officeAPP Server.  Personaly I don't know about existing modules at time.

I don't exactly understand what you mean. Do you mean that is possible by default because the option exists to create the desired functionality myself, by building a module? I don't think that is really an option for me, considering my developing-experience:).

Or do you mean that you know that it is possible, but you don't know if I would need a third party module for it?

Either way: If there ís a certain module specifically developed for this functionality, that would be awesome! Anyone?
