Hey thanks,
Do you know if the content loader allows you to modify the filters?

Hey Snowball,

I was going to say content loader as I saw that and downloaded it when I got there jumptotop plugin.

As far as I know you can use the filters and not allow users to edit the excel sheet.

Alternatively you can export an excel sheet via excel as an interactive webpage, and use it in a custom code or custom html module.

Im sure docman has the ability to use excel online as well.

We did a system ages ago where the user exported the excel into a folder on the system, and a bat file auto uploaded it to the website into docman and it worked perfectly with security permissions set as excel.

I'll try dig out the old code I used for it.

Was all VBA :)))))
