    Web Discussions option

    I am trying to use the Web Discussions in Excel via Tools menu, Online Collaboration option, Web Discussions option. (This feature is also available in Word and PowerPoint.)I am hoping someone can give me some insight into the discussion server. I contacted my ISP for a server name; however, when I try to use it, I receive the error message "Unable to download data from server xxx: A connection with the server could not be established." I contacted the ISP again, but they can't help me. Can anyone in the Lounge give me a hand? Thanks!

    This requires the Microsoft Office Server Extensions to be installed on the ISP's server. I think, really, it was designed for intranet use. MS has an article on installing these extensions on the server:
