Have you tried linking to the spreadsheet? How well that works will depend on the type of output you are creating and it may not work smoothly for all users in all browsers if webhelp is your output.
RoboHelp does not offer any spreadsheet functions of its own and I don't think any HTML editor does. Tables can be created but that's a different thing.

Peter, I don't want to do that. You may have already answered my question when you said that you don't think any HTML editor offers that capability. I'm surprised one cannot set up a table with formulas inside, in the same way one does in Excel. Mmmm...?
Willam, thanks. How difficult is it to create a script or write code that does that?
Whatever conversion you manage to be succesful with, keep in mind that these files should be saved as HTML not HTM. If they are saved as HTM files, RH will happily take them to its bosom as if they were its own dear offspring.
After much effort and no results, the files would then all be expectorated as one big hair ball.
- Save the file as HTML (perhaps create a special style sheet to get the formatting you'd like).
- Add the file to Baggage Files.
- Be happy.
