Pinned topic The "Export to:" function for excel in SA Publisher does not work

‏2012-03-19T16:45:26Z |
Anyone understand if there is a configuration change needed to enable this? I can't get it to work for MS Word or MS Excel. I have MS Office 2007 on my machine. It does work when you click on the "Save a Copy", "Print", "Email" or "Comment" icons.

Any insight is appreciated.
Thanks

    Problem solved. Looks like there is an activeX control that is enabled for launching word and excel within the html page. If your browser 1. Doesn't support activex or 2. Has them disabled, they won't work. In our case, there as a MS Active Directory group policy which disabled activex controls for any URL that wasn't in the trusted zone. We had to have our box added and violoa!, it works.
    Thanks.
