    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!

    /Hi! We tried using addFromBase64(myBase64) in Office 365 insider build and it is working. We want to know when will this API be available in production release of Office JS?

    Hi! We also tried using context.workbook.worksheets.addFromBase64(mybase64) and it gives This operation is not implemented error. We have Beta CDN for Office JS and excel-web-16.00.js. Are we missing something here?
