Dear Experts,

I remember an email i received in Lotus Notes that when i double clikc the pasted table image, it automatically opens in  Excel. How can i do this in Lotus notes?

I usually received attachements in LN then open the file applcation to its programs but this one i received, i thought it was a pasted grpahic but when double clicking it, it is opening in excel.

Can anyone show how this kind of thing is being done?Thanks.

    Accepted Solution

    From Lotus Notes Inbox, create a new email, at the Body section,
    Click from menu "Create", "Object", than "Microsoft Excel Worksheet", and click 'ok', you wil have the excel in lotus.

    Hope this help.

    Another way is to copy the actual cells of an existing spreadsheet, then go into a Notes email and use "Paste Special."  Microsoft Excel Worksheet is one of the choices.  This way, instead of simply being a *picture* of the table, it's an actual Excel table itself.  I personally love it when someone uses this option to send me info in table form, because the way they have it is never quite the way I want it.
