Preview a Web page

To get the most accurate view of what your page will look like when it is published, you should publish the page to a local location and view it in the Web browser (Web browser: Software that interprets HTML files, formats them into Web pages, and displays them. A Web browser, such as Windows Internet Explorer, can follow hyperlinks, transfer files, and play sound or video files that are embedded in Web pages.).

  1. In the Publish dialog box, click Browse next to File name under Publish as, and choose a local disk folder as the location to which to publish.
  2. Select the Open published Web page in browser check box.
  3. Click Publish.

Your published page is saved to the local drive you specified, and the page appears in your Web browser for you to preview.

  1. Make changes to the original workbook from which you published, and when you're satisfied with the results, change the location to which you save the Web page from your local disk folder to the public location, and republish.

 Note   When you're saving an entire workbook as a noninteractive Web page, you can preview the page without publishing it by clicking Web Page Preview on the File menu.
