Hi.

I want to generate a report using Excel as output type. Using Windows XP with Excel installed, the report is shown in the browser (IE7) correctly.
Openeing this report on an Windows 2003 Server with IE6 without Excel installed on the system an error appers. The system can't open the excel file, because there's no excel. So far so good. But when i want to save the excel file (report.xls) on the filesystem the windows error message "Cannot copy file: Cannot read from the source file or disk.".
Any ideas what's the problem and how to solve it?

THX 4 Ur help.

Kind regards
myma

Solution: After changing the titel of the reports (-> file-name) the IE6 can also save the reports. Reason: Special signs the IE6 can't handle, I think. IE7 and firfox are more modern :-).
