When channels upload the files from the server to the local PC, it seems as though it only gets HTML and images files. However, I have PowerPoint, Excel, and ASP files which also need to be uploaded in to the channel. Can channels only support HTML and image files?

Hi,
If you're talking about the CDF file, then yes, you can only use HTML, ASP and image files. You can include 'rich media' files, but they would have to be embedded into an HTML file or at least re-directed.

Hope this helps.

So if I want to use Powerpoint or Excel files it would have to be viewed on-line - is that right?
Will ASP files work the same way i.e if the Excel spreadsheet or Access database is edited will the channel still pick up these changes when it updates the files?

Yup!
The Channel picks up just the references to the files.  The clients browser polls the channels the user has subscribed to and displays whatever is in the CDF file.  The contents of these can change as often as you want.  I worked on the FT's push channel, and in the CDF we had four advert files (ad1.htm, ad2.htm, etc) which were iframes in the main page. The contents of these were sometime changed daily and were often shockwave files. But 'cos the file names they were embedded in didn't change, there was no need to update the CDF every time we changed the adverts.
