        }
        function openExcelDocPath(strLocation, boolReadOnly) {
            var objExcel;
            objExcel = new ActiveXObject("Excel.Application");
            if (objExcel != null) {
                objExcel.Visible = true;
                alert(strLocation);

                objExcel.Workbooks.Open(strLocation, false, false);
                objExcel.UserControl = true
            }
        }
    </script>
