Hello,

I have an ASP.NET web content form where I have installed MSChart application.
I have also installed this MS CHart control in the toolbox,  however, when I attempt to drag this control on to a webcontent form, I get the following error msg:

"The operation could not be completed.  Invalid FORMATETC structure".

 I have attached a screnshot for more details.

I am researching the deletion of a * .suo files, but I can't seem to find this file in my project/solution.

ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

What do you mean by "MS Chart"?  Are you talking about the old ActiveX control, or the new charting controls?

In order to see .suo files, you need to show hidden files in Windows Explorer.

TheLearnedOne,

Thank you for the quick reply.  I was referring to the MSChart control that allows developers to display tabular data in a graphic format (ie: line charts, bar charts, pie charts, etc.)

ASP.NET is multi-threaded, and the MSChart.ocx is an COM ActiveX control, which is single-threaded.  The two don't play well together.  Also, it looks like a web page is not a proper site for the ActiveX control.

I would look into proper charting components for ASP.NET.
