I have a web page that is generated using ASP and is displaying information in a table format. When a user clicks on a button, a new page is generated (with the same information) with the contenttype=application/vnd.ms-excel. This causes the page to be opened in Excel on the users machine. The browser is IE, so Excel is actually opened within the browser.<BR><BR>This works wonderful, except I would like to do some formatting to the excel sheet now. I would like to do this using vbscript on the client. Is there anyway that I can get the reference to the embedded excel object and manipulate it ?<BR><BR>If I have to open a new window and open the page inside there and then get the reference, that will not be a problem.<BR><BR>Thanks.
