I created a C program MYPROGRAM on an ultrix machine that loads data
from a database query into an EXCEL spreadsheet.
The problem i'm having is the first time the program runs after
entering NETSCAPE it fails. It opens EXCEL, however EXCEL returns
a message that it could not open MYPROGRAM.XLS.. It should be trying
to load the data generated by MYPROGRAM not MYPROGRAM itself. All
subsequent program runs work fine. If I exit NETSCAPE and re-enter
the error repeats itself on the first run of the executable.
I'm guessing that the problem has somthing to do with my mime type, but
i'm not sure. I created my own mime application/excel that launches
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am using NETSCAPE GOLD 3.01
WINDOWs NT 3.51
