I have read a similar thread where it was indeed possible to embed an excel spreadsheet into a vb.net application. I am wondering if this is possible with vb express 2008. the best that I have been able to find is

toolbar>context menu>choose items>COM>FlexiGrid version 6.0.

I would like to have a fully fledged excel spreadsheet control for ease of use for the user. is this possible? also is it possible to have other arbitrary spreadsheets working in the background so that I could harness their power without having to write my own calculation routines? would I be able to add such spreadsheets to the my.resources sort of scene?

Thanks to anyone who is able to help.
