SharePoint 2010 with sample example.
Install Excel Add: To install the Excel AddIn go to the site, click on Mobile Entree Configuration->Global Config
Excel Addin: After installation of Mobile Entree AddIn, we
will get an option in Excel under "Insert" section named "Mobile View
Configuration". This AddIn will help you to set a view when we open
Excel in a mobile browser.

Give some title name like "Content Approval".

settings; select the Excel file that we have already uploaded to
