Hi All,
Is it possible to edit an existing Excel sheet through the web. For example, I have a button called "EDIT" on my web page, as soon as I click Edit it should open up an existing EXCEL Sheet and allow users to change or update the values in the sheet & save the sheet. If its possible how to do it. Please help. Its urgent. Thank you.

You should look into a Content management system or you would have to look into some server side code to manipulate the data, but that can cause issues with multiple people and such.

I agree. Here's the link:
