  1. ie5 & Excel(not current context) (1 messages)

    hi all,

    This is not related to the context but please bear with me.

    i want to open an Excel file from a link in the ie5 . But instead of opening the Excel application it opens in the ie5 only because of which i am not able to use some of the features of Excel. Can somebody suggest a solution.
  2. Vivek, if you have a JSP like the following:

    <% response.setContentType("application/x-msexcel"); %>
    <table>
       <tr>
          <th>AAAA</th>
          <th>BBBB</th>
          <th>CCCC</th>
       </tr>
       <tr>
          <td>1</td>
          <td>2</td>
          <td>3</td>
       </tr>
    </table>

    Excel should startup with that data displayed. Does that help?

    Gordon.
