    I feel like Abbott and Costello as to who's on first with this problem (and if it should be
    moved to another area please let me know)
    I have IE8 running under W7 Home Premium.

    Today I tried to run an Excel spreadsheet that I last used under XP and IE7.
    The spreadsheet goes out to a website that maintains a "dashboard" of info I want to retrieve.
    Even though I'm logged in to that website the Excel program gives me a coded error message saying
    that I need to be logged in.

    I'm guessing that the login cookie is getting dropped somehow.
    If it bears on this, I use Comodo as my firewall; and MSSE as my antivirus protector.

    Can anyone help me unravel who's on first and help me fix this problem?

    Thank you,
    Dick

    When you have IE8 open.Go to Tools,Internet Options.Then under the General tab
    click on.Browser history settings,see how many days you have the History setting for.Under the,Advance tab scroll down to the.Security section.Make sure the,Empty Temporary IE files folder when closed is UN checked.
    Hope this helps you out.

    I'm wondering if putting the web site in your allowed web sites area would help. Internet Options, privacy, pop up blocker settings. This is just a stab in the dark.

    Thanks Guys. I had already tries what bong tubera and Ted suggested. I did the "unchecking" that Ron suggested.
    Restarted IE; no joy. Rebooted; no joy.

    PT:
    Thanks for the reply. Tried IE Compatability mode - didn't work.
    I'm running Excel 2007 under W7. The app I'm trying to run was written in Excel97-2003.
    So it was written before W7 and IE8.
    Maybe this question needs to be moved by a moderator over to the MS Office section?

    hmmm...interesting now if the program is written on office 97-2003 and you are opening it on excel 2007, there's somewhat a backward compatibility issues here...
    have you tried saving it on excel 2007 sir? and yes i believe this is an ms office concern.

    Assuming you have an HTTP connection (unencrypted), you can use a debugging proxy program, such as Fiddler (http://www.fiddler2.com/), to see what is being sent. This could help confirm the theory that your Excel session is not sharing cookies with IE. Not that I can think of any way to change that...

    Thanks, guys, for your responses. I tried saving it in Excel 2007, and that didn't help.

    I'm going to try the Fiddler route, but using it may be beyond my skill set.
    I'll have to look at the tutorial videos to see if I can learn how to use it.
