    The API is in preview for Excel Desktop and Mac now!
    This feature is not be able to GA due to this API is not available on Excel online due to the Excel online cannot insert worksheet from the external workbook, so Team is now working on investigating on Excel online. and figure out the features that we can support now and our strategy is to build addFromBase64 for Excel Online with a limited supported feature, which allow us to GA this API. and then we will continue iterating this API to support more features

    For Excel Desktop and Mac beta preview. you could use our Beta CDN, more info on this here https://aka.ms/excelapiopenspec

    Here is a sample code snippet using the API

    https://gist.github.com/jipyua/caec8eb5fddc0f611c43a1dbb356fa2a

    key line of code context.workbook.worksheets.addFromBase64(mybase64)

    send an xlsx (base64 encoded)

    please use it and send us feedback!

    Office Dev Team, the form presented in the link doesn't seem to be working--no permissions to view.

    I agree with all previous comments. We need a timeline on when we can use this API in production. My devs love using it but we can't use it while it's still in DEV. As this request was originally from June 2016, I would hope Microsoft Office DEV team could give software developers a definitive plan.

    I agree this is an important item and would like some type of feedback as it limits what we can develop and deploy.
