Which Excel, Visio and other Office products can "Publish" to SharePoint


A frequent question I get is "I can't publish to SharePoint". Not all editions of Excel and Visio have the publish feature!

Excel and Excel Services

Any edition of Excel can save files to a SharePoint library. Only the following editions of Excel 2010 can publish to Excel Services:

  • Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010
  • Microsoft Office Professional Academic 2010
  • Microsoft Excel Stand-Alone 2010

Visio and Visio Services

Any edition of Visio can save files to a SharePoint library. The edition needed to use Visio with other SharePoint features varies:

  • SharePoint Workflow import and export through SharePoint Designer 2010: Premium
  • Visual mash-ups with Visio Services: Professional and Premium
  • Publishing of diagrams to SharePoint Process repository: Standard, Professional and Premium
  • Publishing Visio Web (.vdw) drawings to SharePoint: Professional and Premium
  • Automatic Data Linking to data sources in SharePoint: Professional and Premium
