Does the URL work for you in a normal browser? I've just loaded the page in Chrome with no issue.

"Consuming Web Services in Excel 2007

Summary: Learn how to call the Live Search Web service from an Excel 2007 document-level customization and insert search results into a worksheet."

But there was a notice ...

"We were unable to locate this content in es-es.

Here is the same content in en-us."

http://msdn.microsoft.com/es-es/library/dd819156(en-us,office.12).aspx is the resultant URL.

Seems like the control you are using to display the content does not read the HTTP header properly.

Here is the response header I get for the URL you supplied ...

The "Location" header is an instant redirect of the es-es page to the en-us content.

Sorry, no. I'm still using XP with Office 2003 - not sure if I'll make the jump to the "ribbon" interface. I've tried it in the office and just don't see the logic to it. I suppose after 20 years of the menu, I'm sort of used to it.

But I know a lot (I'm a genius, it says so on my profile !!! ;-) ), so maybe if you have some specific issues, I can help you find the answer.

Just doing a google search (http://www.google.co.uk/search?rlz=1C1GGLS_en-GBGB319GB319&aq=f&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=Consuming+Web+Services+in+Excel+2007) revealed a lot of information.
