    Export to Excel missing... (IE7)

    Hi,

    The graphic below shows that the useful option to 'Export to Excel' is missing from the context menu on my home PC. The context menu on the right was from my work PC. Can anyone confirm if its the operating system or office difference that is causing the export option to be missing on my PC?!

    Also, is there any way to add it to the menu on my home PC? (Vista Home Premium, IE7 and Office 2007)

    TX

    A quick search suggests that the option should be available for IE7 / Office 2007 too. You could check the registry, the option is stored under

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerMenuExtE&xport to Microsoft Excel

    Is that key present on your PC?

    Hi,

    My registry shows the two items that are currently in the left menu (Add to AMV, and MediaManager), but not the Export option.

    Any idea how to get it back?
    TX for assistance
    Regards,
    Rudi

    Re: Export to Excel missing... (IE7)

    Try this in RegEdit:

    Navigate to the key I mentioned (...MenuExt).
    Select Edit | New | Key.
    Rename the new key to E&xport to Microsoft Excel
    Double click the Default value in the right-hand pane.
    Set its value to
    <code>
    res://C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice12Excel.exe/3000
    </code>
    Click OK.
    Select Edit | New | DWORD value.
    Rename the new value to Contexts
    Double click the Contexts value.
    Set its value to 1.
    Click OK.
    You will probably have to close and restart IE7 to see the new context menu item.

    Hans,

    Why did you add an accelerator here. >>> Rename the new key to E&xport to Microsoft Excel
    It does not show in the context menu?

    I notice that none of the menu items have accelerators in your screenshot, so you probably have turned them off. If you want to see them in Vista:

    Select Start | Control Panel.
    Open Ease of Access and select Ease of Access Center.
    Select Make the keyboard easier to use.
    Tick the check box "Underline keyboard shortcuts and access keys".

    (In XP it's in the Display Settings control panel)

    Thanks for that tip...its done.

    PS: You should have warned me about that VOICE that speaks when I open the Access Centre. Its 1:30am and suddenly this voice blurts out "EASE OF ACCESS CENTRE MAKES ACCESS EASY ON YOUR PC......." I was playing music on my laptop earlier and the volume was up still....Boy did I have to grab for that volume control.... <img src=/S/yikes.gif border=0 alt=yikes width=15 height=15>

    Re: Export to Excel missing... (IE7)

    Hans,

    I am not one for 'playing' in the registry, but just for learning sake, could you explain two things for me.

    1. In the line: res://C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOffice12Excel.exe/3000, what is *res://* and why is */3000* at the end.
    2. What is a *DWord* value and what happens if it is set to value 1

    OK, that may be 4 questions... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Export to Excel missing... (IE7)

    1. I don't know. I just used the value I found on my PC and changed Office10 (for Office XP) to Office12 (for Office 2007). <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    2a. DWORD is the registry name for a 32 bit integer number - it's called Long Integer in Visual Basic.

    2b. The value 1 for Contexts tells Internet Explorer that the item should be displayed in the default right-click menu.
    If it should only be displayed for pictures, use 2, and if it should be displayed in the default menu and for pictures, use 1+2 = 3.
    Details can be found in Adding Entries to the Standard Context Menu. (The values mentioned there are hexadecimal)
