    So do you want to serve images or excel files or what?

      I want to extract only graphs and not tables and display those graphs in browser using CGI programming.

      Thanks and Regards

    You really need to tell us more about the problem, and even then it's unlikely we will do more than point you at a bunch of modules. This is likely to be a rather non-trivial problem because Excel graphs are not a common browser supported object type. If you have the opportunity to massage the data on a PC then you could export the graphs as a suitable image type. Otherwise, most likely, you will need to recreate the graphs from the original data using a suitable charting module. In any case the devil is in the details and you have not given us any details.

    True laziness is hard work

    Since you and/or your company already took away the jobs of people who actually knew how to do it ... don't you know how to do it? :-/

      I one word don't, simultaneous connections will hang while excel single threads the graph creation.

      Use gnuplot instead so that each CGI invocation will spawn a separate gnuplot instance.
