Benoit, thank you for your input, it is greatly appreciated. This is definitely something we’d like to get to soon, but unfortunately there are a few other higher priority items. We’ll keep you posted with status updates.

Thanks for your feedback! This is in our backlog but lower priority than a few other features. We’ll keep you posted with updates.
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
key line of code context.workbook.worksheets.addFromBase64(mybase64)
send an xlsx (base64 encoded)
please use it and send us feedback!

This is an important feature for our development across Word, Excel and PowerPoint and we need for it to be aligned as soon as possible please. It would be very helpful if it came with future Office apps that support Add-In as well. Thank you.
