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!

Hi! Is there a timeline of when this is expected to be stable and released? We tried using the API, following https://gist.github.com/jipyua/caec8eb5fddc0f611c43a1dbb356fa2a but received a "Not Implemented" error. We would like to send OOXML fragments from our remote servers to our Office Online Add-in going forward and this endpoint would be instrumental for that approach. Thanks!Aaron Nwabuoku supported this idea ·
