createobject("Excel.Sheet") what .dll do I need?

Hi,

My server doesn't allow the following ........

set ExcelFace = CreateObject("Excel.Sheet")

I assume it is because the Object is not recognized.

What .dll needs to be registered on the server to be able
to use this object?

Thanks,

Oren

Fritz,

this looks good,
but what .dll files must I get my hosting company to register on their server
to get it to work.


Thanks,
Oren

The hosting company will have to install the necessary prerequisites for OWC--I am not sure what the odds are of them doing that. On the other hand, they wouldn't be likely to do what you needed either--to install Excel on the server and then allow you to create office automation objects!!! You could bring there server to its knees with all of the other sites on that server. You don't happen to have your own server there by any chance, do you?

The last link that I gave you did have a bit on what you need to install.
