Recently Microsoft launched it's new version of Office Webs Apps, and since then the Embed of Excel spreadsheets into WordPress Blogs has not worked.
Prior to Microsoft's official launch of this update Office Web Apps, users had the option of "Opting Out" of the beta work being done. Any user who chose to "Opt Out" had no problem Embedding Excel file. If you did not chose to "Opt Out" the Embed function did not work.
Since the launch, which I believe occurred this week, it appears that users no longer have the option to "Opt Out" and none of the Embed functions work with WordPress.
In searching I found the following explanation of what I believe is the issue,
"Hi, you may already know about this but just giving you a heads up in case you don't.
Microsoft are changing Office Live documents in SkyDrive to resemble the Metro interface, they have also started offering you the option to opt in to a preview of the new Office Web Apps. I currently embed spreadsheets into my WordPress site.
I decided to opt in and then found that any new items I went to embed simply didn't appear. I noticed that the url Microsoft provide you with for the preview has changed and no longer starts http://r.office.microsoft.com, but starts skydrive.live.com and I think WordPress doesn't know yet how to interpret it.
Giving you the heads up in case this becomes a wholesale change and all of a sudden WordPress user's can no longer embed documents/spread sheets etc."
If anyone else has any information on this issue or knows of any possible solutions please let me know.
Thank you in advance.
