    Hello,

    How do I after uploading a MS Excel file attachment get VB to use the local installed version of MS Office to view the attached file instead of opening up in the browser.

    The problem I have is the Excel spread sheet is a graph but when you execute the attachment and open it. It just opens with spurious charcters. It seems I need Excel the application to view the file correctly. I assume it has something to do with the attachment manager but not sure what.

    I'm I barking up the wrong tree here or can this be done.


    Any help !!!!

    That is beyond vBulletin's control. It is up to your browser and computer as to how the attachment is handled when it is downloaded. There is probably an Excel preference for this somewhere.

      Thanks I'll have a little investigation to do then. At least I know its not VB that controls how the file is presented.

      I'll end up just putting a link to the file instead of up loading the file as an attachment.

      Thanks again
