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

                objExcel.Workbooks.Open(strLocation, false, false);
                objExcel.UserControl = true
