    Embedded Excel -Intranet (2003)

    A co-worker came to me with a question that I am not able to answer (again).
    He maintains a website on the company Intranet site.
    He has a link to a Word document that users can open and save to their PC.
    The Word document has an embedded Excel table. He wants the user to be able to double click the table and enter some information and have it calculate. It indicates there are linking problems when we try it.
    Is this possible? I think not but wanted to ask the REAL experts....

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    Users should turn OFF the setting "Browse in same window" for the .doc extension *). The Word document should then open in a "normal" Word window with all functionality available. If "Browse in same window" is on, the document will open in a browser window (or tab) with only limited functionality.

    *) Select Tools | Folder Options in Windows Explorer.
    Activate the File Types tab.
    Select the DOC extension.
    Click Advanced.
    Clear the "Browse in same window" check box.
    OK your way out.

    Hans,

    We made the changes to the setting you mentioned. We still got errors.
    It turns out the Excel file, that was embedded, was corrupt. When we deleted that and opened the Word doc, we did not get the error message.
    So we created a new Excel table and inserted into the Word doc. Now it works whether we change the settings you mentioned or not.
    Thank you for all the help you so freely give!
    I love this site.
