Hi all,
How can I open MS-Excel application from JavaScript and populate the excel sheet.

I want to do this on the client side without giving any request to server.

If we are using activex object, then there is a problem in IE, if activex objects are disabled.

Thanks.

Try making use of EXCEL8.OLB library. The file is located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office. But if Active X is disabled nothing can be done.
