    Default IIS5 and Excel 97

    We have an ASP application that uses Excel as a backend. (I know what<BR>you&#039;re thinking, but we inherited this, and the code was written in <BR>1997).<BR><BR>Out web server is IIS5 and uses Excel 2000. Does anyone have <BR>experience<BR>trying to run Excel 97 on IIS 5 ? We receive this error:<BR><BR>Error Type:<BR>Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A801C)<BR>Unknown runtime error: &#039;xlSheet.Cells&#039;<BR><BR>Note that &#039;xlSheet&#039; is a variable name<BR><BR>Lance

    I know this is way out range to be called a little late, but ...<BR><BR>What I&#039;ve found is that Excel 97 wasn&#039;t built with the Web in mind. A lot of the back end and front end functions in Excel 2000 do not exist in Excel 97. <BR><BR>You would either need to create the functions yourself or upgrade to Excel 2000.
