The Excel section has been migrated to the Office Online Server add-on. You can install the add-on from the Marketplace to add or edit Excel files. For existing customers, the functionality of the Excel section will remain active and only be removed once the Office Online Server add-on has been activated. New customers can only add an Excel section after installing the Office Online Server add-on.
