How do I display Excel files on a BrightSign player using BrightAuthor?

Last Updated: October 20, 2016

We do not support Excel files natively. However, you can convert them to image or text files and then display them using the player. There are many different applications that can perform this conversion (here's one example).

You can also export Excel files as HTML using the Excel software itself, then display the HTML. See this FAQ for more details.

The easiest way to convert an Excel sheet is to take a screenshot of it and save it as image file. Check the Supported Image Formats FAQ to ensure the saved images will display successfully on the player

Depending on how complicated the spreadsheet is, you can recreate the fields and layout using Live Text feature in BrightAuthor.
