Subject: FLASH: Link to an Excel spreadsheet
From: mholley
Date: Fri, 11 Feb 2000 20:29:12 GMT

I'm rolling out a new navigation for our intranet this weekend, and everything
looks great except one link from a .swf to a MS Excel spreadsheet. When you
click on the link a message box opens up asking if you want to download the

The spreadsheet is supposed to open in the browser window. It's not. Why? The
mime content_type on the server is set to application/vnd.ms-excel, and 'browse
in same window' is checked.

All of the other spreadsheets are opening properly. The one variable is that
this particular spreadsheet is using pivot tables to get practically all of it's
information from another spreadsheet (content providers decision).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
