    Simple answer: no.

    Longer answer: for xls(x) files you need an office program like libreoffice, openoffice, m$office.
    Or you have to convert them to html to view them (editing is not possible, of course).

    No. As far as I know there is NO way to make an office file viewable directly via browser.
    You always have to download it and view it in a local office software.
    Or you can try convert the file to something html-like but this in most cases will lose some information and is only suitable for very simple files.
