Trying to launch excel from a remote server in order to export data from an Oracle database
Posted on 2006-07-13
I am using an ERP software app that allows me to export data from an Oracle database into a spreadsheet. I am on a remote server on our network and am entering a path (in the ERP app) to excel.exe on my local hard drive. I am getting an 'error' message that says 'The operating system is not presently configure to run this application'. I think the appication it is referring to is the excel program but I don't know what OS it is referring to; the one on the remote server or the one on my local hard drive. If I can figure out which OS it would be referring to, then I need to know what kind of 'configuration' needs to be done. I don't know if it is registry keys or environment variables.
Anyone got any ideas?
