Does ClearScada allow an option that opens up or previews an EXCEL worksheet that can be displayed to operators?

For example a mimic page which is a display of an excel worksheet saved locally on the drive.

Sure. Depends how fancy you want to be. Assuming you have Excel installed on the operator machine then the simplest way would be to configure a pick action to run a system command, pointing to Excel and the file to open, e.g.:

"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Office\oot\\Office16\\excel.exe" "Whatever.xlsx"

If you want it dynamic you can do it via animations or call it from some mimic script.

This opens up Excel, if you want to open in up within ViewX then you may need to save it as a HTML file, stick it on some webserver and just open that.

If ViewX supported a nested WebKit instance it would be possible to launch some Google Calc thing too 👅
I really wish WebKit (or other HTML5 browser) stuff was exposed from ViewX. It's obviously using something for the GIS integration in the newer versions, but we still need to use dodgy script hacks to launch IExplore.exe to popup a webbrowser..
