Office Live Workspace – view contents of a file

Office Live Workspace has a built-in file content viewer so you can browse the contents of Excel, Word and PowerPoint files in your documents workspace.

So load your Office Live Workspace in your browser and you’ll have a list of files. Here’s one such list:


Now hover your mouse over a file whose contents you want to view – webDotWiz is hovering over an Excel file called FCalc 2.0 Diesel or Electric Locomotive.xls in the screenshot above. NOte the options on the popup: View, Open in Microsoft Office Excel, Share, Rename. Let’s use the View option – hover over this choice and it underlines as a cue before clicking:


So click View and the spreadsheet opens for viewing.

Note that the graph, part of the spreadsheets, is also displayed, even the tooltip associated with the graph:


Before closing the document, click in the title of the document (it’ll be highlighted with a different coloured box) to change the name of the file if you want to:


A click on the line below the name of the file (where it says to click…) enables you to enter some keywords to describe the content of the file:


When you’ve finished viewing, go to the toolbar and use the Close button to close the viewing session and get back to your document listing in your workspace:


Above content posted using Windows Live Writer, Windows Live Photo Gallery, Microsoft OneNote (for the screengrabs) and Paint.NET (resizing and adding arrows to the graphics).
