Have been using an ASP page that opens Excel application using CreateObject(excel.application) in the background, enters new values in a workbook, saves and closes app. Necessary to open the app since other fields recalculate using these values. (And I never open the file directly on screen, but later use SQL to display the field values on screen.)<BR><BR>Just updated to Windows 2000 and opening Excel app no longer works. Is this a bug fix in Windows 2000 or is there some other variable I need to set in the createobject routine? Any suggestions?
