    You can use almost any graphics program (for example Paint) to trim away unnecessary parts of your screenshot, then save it as a .png or .gif file. Please don't leave the picture larger than 640 (wide) x 480 (high) pixels. File size can be at most 100 KB.

    If you specify an image file (.bmp, .gif, .jpg or .png) as attachment, it will be displayed at the bottom of the post. In most situations, it is more convenient for other Loungers to see the image directly instead of having to open an attachment (and in this case, having to open the .gif file in the .zip file). But your screenshot is too large for that.

    Fine, I guess I should have just used PhotoShop instead of Paint to begin with!

    Word in IE frame (Excel2003/IE6.0)

    ( this post has been editted because I realized I showed a WORD document in the I.E. frame, not an Excel worksheet. We have had this problem with both, and it was hectic when I posted this). My apologies.

    Not sure if this is an I.E. question or what -

    So what controls which Office toolbars appear when a worksheet or document appears within an I.E. web frame?
    We are having trouble with it only showing the Reviewing toolbar by default. We can right click in the toolbar area and choose to open the standard bar (for the printing icon), but we want the standard toolbar to appear by default, and not the reviewing.
    I know there are other ways around this - (make worksheet open in new frame, save target as, etc.) but that's not they way they want it done. They want it in the frame, but with the Excel standard toolbar at top.
    I TRIED to attach a screen shot so you can see what I mean, but it says the file is too large.

    Re: Excel in IE frame (Excel2003/IE6.0)

    Hi Tracy

    I hope I have got this the right way around...my apologies if not. My solution is NOT to get Excel to open within the Browser for reasons you have found out but to Open Excel from the browser window so that it opens in an Excel shell. Even if you did open the file you would not be able to save changes. There are two options to get the user to save as using the right hand mouse click or to use a piece of script in the HTML aspect like so:

    <html>
    <head>
    <script language=VBScript>
    Dim objExcel

    Sub cmdBtn_onclick()
    call OpenWorkbook("c:tempmytestfile.xls")
    End Sub

    Sub OpenWorkbook(strLocation)

    Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    objExcel.Visible = true
    objExcel.Workbooks.Open strLocation
    objExcel.UserControl = true
    End Sub

    </script>
    </title>Launch Excel</title>
    </head>
    <body>


    Click the button to open the Excel Spreadsheet</p>
    <input type=button name=cmdBtn value="Open Excel File">
    </body>
    </html>

    Even Sharepoint applications invoke this type of code to get it to open from outside the browser shell.

    I hope this helps?
    Jerry
