I have a public Google spreadsheet in Google Drive and want to display it within my blog post (people can directly see it, not only a link to the sheet).

How can I do that? Please help!

[Edit] I'm using blog from wordpress.com

From Google Docs Help:


Once you're done creating and editing your spreadsheet, you can publish it to a webpage. >Just click the Share drop-down menu on the top right and choose Publish as a webpage. Then, click Publish now.

Then, everyone you choose can access your spreadsheet by entering the URL you send them into their browser's address bar.

Even after you publish a spreadsheet, it won't appear in any search index.


After you publish your spreadsheet, you can share it with the world by embedding it (or parts of it) in a website or blog.

Publish your spreadsheet following the steps listed above and a unique URL is generated. Use this URL to embed the spreadsheet on your website or blog. You can also insert a spreadsheet in Google Sites. Just click Edit page > Insert > Spreadsheet from within your site. You'll need to enter the URL of your spreadsheet to embed it.

You don't say what blogging software you're using.

But if it's Blogger, as well as publishing the spreadsheet (as per the previous answer), you also need to use a Web Element to display it in the blog.

NB: I haven't done this for a while, and when I last did the Google Docs publish command didn't have a "share to blogger " option. There's a chance it's changed since (as it has for some other types of Google Docs)

Using google.com/webelements/docs/spreadsheets/# seems to be what I need. However when I tried, my published spreadsheet cannot be showed in my wordpress.com blog. – Nam G VU Sep 23 '10 at 9:50
