Accessing xlsm files from an IIS web page

I am having an issue accessing xlsm files from an IIS web page remotely. The file cannot be opened, saved or anything else.  I have updated everything in IIS to allow the Office 2007 extentions.  Any ideas?

OK, so you type something like this in the browser location field:

http://www.mysite.com/somepath/somefile.xlsm

and you expect it to show you a save-as dialog so you can save the file to desktop or somewhere else?

>> The files in question simply do nothing when you try to open/save them.

so does an error message show up at all?  Like file not found or something like that?

Hi,

HOW, exactly, are you trying to access these files? what happens when you try to access?

Have you updated the MIME type definitions in IIS?  Normally you will need to add .xlsm as mime type 'application/excel' or something like that.

Cheers.

I am sorry for not being clear.  When I said that I updated IIS to allow the Office 2007 extentions that is what I ment.  That I had added the definitions into MIME.  Thanks.

I am accessing them through a web address.  All other file types are accessable.  The files in question simply do nothing when you try to open/save them.
