The best way is to employ a svg table. Do the following:

1. Make your table as you wish in EXCEL.
2. Once the table is finished, save the spreadsheet AS PDF. This is very important since is the key to have a perfect svg table.
3. Open Inkscape and open the .pdf you got in the previous step. Inkscape will show you the "Pdf Import Settings" dialog. There, in the "Import settings" field, set the value to 130 (VERY IMPORTANT). After that, press the OK buttom.
4. Now the table will be in Inkscape as a svg object. Do click on the table to select it, and after that select the menu "File" and the command "Document properties..."
5. In the dialog that appears, select the option "Resize page to content", press the buttom "Resize page to drawing or selection" and after that press the buttom "Close".
6. Finally, save the Inkscape file (with the table) as PLAIN SVG.

That's all. Now you have to use that svg table in an ebook in the same way as any other image.

Below I attach an epub with a simple svg table so you can watch how it looks.

Regards

NOTE: In the step 2, save the pdf with the highest quality that you are able. Of that way the svg table will result perfect.
