PowerPivot Workbooks as Interactive Web Apps – Try it Yourself!

Bill Jelen and I talk a lot about a few recurring topics.  One of our favorites:  it’s one thing to be told that PowerPivot workbooks can be transformed into web applications with a simple Save As, and quite another thing to see it for yourself.

I don’t know why there’s a difference, but there is – you’re looking at something in your browser, it’s an interactive application, and then you remind yourself, “oh yeah, I built this in Excel,” and a light bulb comes on.  I see that effect every day when I show people for the first time.

Try Out Bill’s Apps, and Send in Your Own

To test that on a broader scale, Bill decided to take his site on and open it up to the community, which I think is really quite cool.

Right now he only has two applications shared out publicly – he’s going to let YOU send in workbooks that he will review and publish.  He’s also got some PowerPivot gear to give away.

Watch the short video here for a quick tour, explanation, and instructions on submitting workbooks

Then, go check out the site itself:

Password:  P0werP!vot

NOTE:  that first “0” in the password is a zero, not a letter.

Have fun!

  1. I am trying to get to that website and it fails to log me in. On your site you list the password as POwerP!vot. in the email you listed it as PowerP!vot neither seem to work?

  2. Rob, I think I found the password on YouTube with a video link by Bill Jeleen it is P0werP!vot – second digit is a zero according to Bill

  3. Hi, I’ve seen the Youtube video and the site. The possibility to publish a PowerPivot workbook it is very interesting and useful. I’d like to try this capacity, and so I’ve saved my workbooks as a web page and tried to publish to SharePoint, but any user interactions are lost. Is it possible to have further details, please? Thanks
