Opening Excel attachment

By sanderson ·
Has anyone else encountered a problem in a Citrix environment where users CAN'T open an Excel attachment? We are currently running NT with Office 97 on 4 servers (and all the latest Hot Fixes); any other attachment opens fine...Excel attachments will not open on any of them. Any ideas??

Some of my users have had a similar problem. The way they resolved it was to Zip the file and then e-mail it.

Tried that...it still won't open even from an e-mail attachment. But thanks.

when the excel file was created and saved/closed by default you have to execute this line.
xlBook.Application.Windows(BookName).Visible = True
where xlBook is the book object. When programming with XL automation server using VB or similar language, at the last we have to write this line so that while opening this work book again the book is visible. otherwise XL will open but the book will not be visible at all. in that case you can even write a macro for the excel to make the work book visible.

All the best

If you are still tackling this problem, perhaps you should consider calling your local super-hero.
