What you want is to have a full excel in the webbrowser.
This can't be done by POI.

One way to do such a thing is to use excel embedded in a webpage.
But that's a active-x specific stuff and so will only work when the
following conditions are meet:

- Browser is internet explorer 5.x or 6.x on Windows (No Mac and Linux)
- Excel is installed on the maschine where the browser is running

Another way would be to use a product like: http://www.exceleverywhere.com/
