Hi,
I am using WSS 3 on BPOS.
I have created a task list that I want to edit in Excel.
My local machine is Windows 7 64 with Office 2010 fully installed.
When I click on Edit in Dataview, I get a message box saying that ActiveX are desactivated.
I have setup the IE8 security level at the lower but still not working.
I have checked that I can create a table in Excel and publish it to the SharePoint site, no problem.

Any help apreciated

Thanks

Regards
Vincent

Did you add the site to your local intranet sites or trusted sites?

Ok, with the security settings for trusted sites, did you enable prompting for Active-X controls?
