    Storing a file on the client's system


    Hi Deborah,

    Thank u for the answer to the "Working Offline" question. Here's another.
    1. Is it possible to store a file which contains data downloaded from the
    Web Server as an Excel Sheet on the
    CLIENT'S system? If yes, how?
    Thanking u once again,
    Anitha

    If the file is coming down as an Excel spreadsheet, it will be an Excel
    spreadsheet on the client's system. If you are just downloading data and
    want to save it as an Excel spreadsheet, you will have more difficulty.
    First, there are many security issues involved to prevent someone from
    downloading and executing a file from a Web page that could cause harm.

    You may want to look at some third-party products. I know that some products
    produce reports and download the reports to the user's machine. Maybe one of
    those have an option for Excel.

    Good luck!
