I asked this question this weekend but did not get a response, is there anyone with a suggestion. I am creating a excel report for email and having no problem (using ADODB) creating the report from a dbase. I want to format the excel sheet with column width, font, etc... and want to know if it can be done through asp. I currently have a macro do all of the formatting on the client side, but anti-virus programs scare the recipients advising them of the presence of a macro in the spreadsheet. Any suggestions?
