    Hi Tony,

    You can already edit spreadsheets in the browser. All you need to do is upload your file to OneDrive.com (or your O365 account); make sure you are signed in to the browser with your Microsoft Account (@hotmail.com, @outlook.com, etc.) and then click on the “Edit” button and choose “Edit with Excel Online”

    Cheers,
    Dan [MS]
