View and edit Microsoft Excel files with Google Docs, Sheets and Slides
1. Open the Excel file, upload to Google drive then open it.
2. If you would like a quicker way to open the Excel file, you can install a Chrome Extension called Office Editing for Docs, Sheets & Slides extension from the Chrome web store. This is an official extension from Google for opening Office files in Google Suite Apps. Make sure you also have the Chrome Google Doc, Sheets and Slides installed. Once you have installed the extension and the Apps, change the default program for opening Microsoft Office files to CHROME.
