I've been researching into creating Excel documents in a SharePoint Library from an existing Excel template but all solutions I find are using server code. The Template can be part of a CT or in another Library.

I believe it can be achieved with JavaScript Object Model (jsom). Does anyone know how?


  • I don't think this is a SharePoint related question. Since you had not mentioned anywhere 'SharePoint' in question or at least in tags. Please clarify if your excel document is residing in SharePoint library or else where? – Zakir HC Apr 9 '15 at 11:14

You can use ExcelPlus that permits to deal with Excel in JS and its based on xls-js ... I created it while working on SharepointPlus, a JS library for Sharepoint.
