I have a page with a linkbutton that has it's postbackurl pointing to a page that opens a excel
spreadsheet. The spreadsheet works fine but none of the click events work after the spreadsheet is opened. Here's the code for the page tha opens the spreadsheet.

<%@ Page Title="" Language="VB" MasterPageFile="~/Master Pages/Sponsor Program.master" AutoEventWireup="false" CodeFile="Print Excel.aspx.vb" Inherits="Chairman_Sponsor_Program_Reports_Print_Excel" %>

<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="head" Runat="Server">
</asp:Content>
<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="ContentPlaceHolder1" Runat="Server">
   
</asp:Content>

Here is the vb code behind

Partial Class Chairman_Sponsor_Program_Reports_Print_Excel
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        'CType(Page.PreviousPage, MyPreviousPage).MyPublicMethod()
        Dim fileData() As Byte = System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes(Server.MapPath("~/temp/sponsorsexport.xls"))

        Response.Clear()
        Response.AddHeader("Content-Type", "application/vnd.ms-excel")
        Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=""sponsorsexport.xls""")
        Response.BinaryWrite(fileData)
        Response.Flush()
        Response.End()

    End Sub

End Class

I think it is Excel's security feature which is disabling click and other features. Excel shows an "Enable" button under the toolbar which user has to click to enable all features.

It's the controls on the web page that are not firing not excel.

I fixed this by using navagateurl instead of postbackurl.
