    Hi, I managed to create beautiful pages using Excel. Thanks for the tip… However, after few months and a couple of upgrades to our Office 365 (including Excel).. I cant republish changes or create new pages using excel. I tried the Visio approach, same problem with publishing to the "Site Pages" library. Has anyone encountered such a behaviour.. I am really stuck now.. my beautiful pages may have to go and i have to find an alternative.. Frustrating and not the least wasteful

    I could generate the .htm file using Excel 2013 but when I upload it on my front page, I do not see the image. Only a sign that shows broken link. How do i fix this?

    Does not work with Excel 2013, although you can generate htm files…

    I have a problem inserting the htm file in the content editor. It is just all white and the only thing I see is a little black "X" button in the area where the image should be. The htm file itself works just fine, if opened with e.g. chrome. Any suggestions on that? Thanks in advance

    Hi there, i've followed all the steps yet when i hit apply i just a white box in my content editor web part with the word Bitmap appearing in a few places. When i put the link to my clickable image into the content link field when editing the webpart i tested it and the htm page opened ok in a new tab which suggests that the link was ok. Therefore i can't understand why the image doesn't appear in my content editor web part when i hit apply.

    Genius and perfect timing. I looked at your Sharepoint designer clickmap generation only to realise this only works with 2010. What a great Alternative using Excel 2016 instead. Adds a lot of value! Thanks a lot.
