Spread introduced a number of technologies to Microsoft developers, including the first full-featured spreadsheet component for Visual Basic originally called FarPoint Spread, and the first spreadsheet designer. The Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET versions added an array of new Excel-compatibility features and advanced customization options. Both the .NET spreadsheet component and ASP.NET spreadsheet component continue to deliver this familiar Excel experience to your end-users.
Import Microsoft Excel documents and preserve complete formatting. Interact with the data in Spread from within your application, then export your spreadsheets to Microsoft Excel for portable distribution to your users. Spread supports the current versions of Excel, and supports multiple Excel file formats, including Excel (2007-current xlsx), Excel 97 (xls), comma-delimited (csv), and text (txt). Learn More.
Allow your data to tell stories through the data visualization functionality provided in Spread. Use Sparklines to provide small, focused cell-level charts to provide more meaning to your data. Use Camera Shapes to bring together content from various locations within a spreadsheet, even on different sheets, into a dashboard. In Spread, the Camera shape object provides a live view of a range of cells, including any values, formatting, shapes, charts, or other content. If the range of cells is updated or modified through user interaction, or programmatic updates, the Camera shape immediately refreshes to include the changes. Ranges with different column widths and row heights can be arranged together in the same sheet without affecting one another to create a customized report or interactive dashboard. Additional data visualization is provided in Spread through: Chart Support, Conditional Format, Filtering, and Grouping. View Data Visualization Examples.
Create expressive 2D and 3D charts within your spreadsheets. Chart types include Column, Line, Pie, Bar, Area, XY, Bubble, Stock, XYZ, Doughnut, Radar, and Polar. Add charts through code by using the comprehensive chart object model, or without writing code, at design time by accessing the Spread Designer and Chart Designer. Charts can be bound to external data sources, and you can allow end user make changes to the chart formatting at run time. The fully integrated support for charts in Spread features built-in design dialogs that you can make available in your applications to allow your end-users to create and modify charts in Spread - just as in Microsoft Excel.

Spread is the most powerful .NET spreadsheet component and ASP.NET spreadsheet component available for application development. Spread has an extensive and robust object model, and provides the ability for .NET Windows Forms and ASP.NET developers to customize many elements of the user interface, and to manage the behavior of the control by extending built-in classes and assigning custom objects to Spread. Developers use the Spread .NET controls to embed advanced Microsoft Excel-compatible spreadsheet features into their .NET and ASP.NET applications — features that would otherwise be considered impossible to achieve.
