Very interesting.. I wonder how much functionality can online-excel application have. Does anyone else know about existing excel-type applications online?

Invites don't give you access you need an invite from google

Mrrix32--
I think it works like Writely – you can't invite someone to get an account, but you can invite them to collaboratively edit, which gives them an account.

Not sure, though. Can someone try it anyway?

Just go to labs.google.com.

Click on the link.

You don't get an account when invited in that way JP.

Slight bug. My browser refreshed (I don't know why) and It said I was viewing the file twice and I could chat with my self, Any one else had that? Good thing is I've now seen the chat working.

Oh. It doesn't matter anymore. I think it's *really* live or something.

I haven't been invited yet, and I haven't recieved anything from Google. I *did* sign up both this morning and a few times during the day.

I'm using it right now. All I did was go to labs.google.com and click on the Google Spreadsheets link.

Not sure if it'll work for you guys...

It looks like only one person was logged in, there's not much point chatting to your self.

=SUM(A1:A6) works
=SUM(A2:I2) Dosn't

Is there a reason for this?

Mrrix32: could you still chat if I logged of yesterday?

Mrrix32 [PersonRank 10]

Think so. I'm not completely sure, I was verry tired, can't remember much form then.

Google Spreadsheet is OpenDocument compliant?

Zauker: not yet, but i asked the question to them.

In the help google.com/support/spreadsheet ... they say:

"We currently support .xls and .csv file formats, but are planning to expand support for other formats."

The funny thing is that this product from google contains no search abilities at all.

Have you guys looked at xcellery.com? This service combines best of both worlds in extending Microsoft Excel with all the advantages of an online spreadsheet. Really cool!

It's up and running. Seems to work fine, but there are not enough features yet to really critique it.
