I would like to know how I can host an excel file on a server that would allow a user to access , view and modify/add some content to the file via the internet without downloading the file itself. Each user will access a copy of this file that they will be able to use and save any changes, under their own name, they may have made back to the server for future use. The user should not have the option to download the file, save it on their computer or be able to view or change certain cells, columns, rows (this is easy) or view the VBA code behind it. The user will access the file via a website using a provided login and password. While the file is open and in use by the user, some cells will be updated in real time drawing on information and values from 3rd party software (DDE links for example).
While the overall structure seems to be fairly straightforward – a server, a website and excel. It becomes murky when I try to work out the details in how exactly to connect the three. I understand that ActiveX plug-in maybe needed in order to allow the user to open the excel file in IE but I have a feeling there maybe something more to it than just that.
I would like to know your opinion and view on the best approach to achieve this task.
Only when I implement the slideshow on my website, the images shift to the right in the middle of dissolving. I wanted them to remain centered the whole time, and I included the alignment in my code. You can view the source code where I'm temporarily hosting my site here: http://www.indieworker.com/[^]
I don't understand why the images are shifting. If anyone could help me I would be so grateful.
I know how to make pages and that is pretty much it. I saw something like this on the web and thought it was a good idea. I wanted to know if I could do the same... but it seems more difficult than I though.
This is one of those questions that will get you people screaming from both sides of the fence. I have struggled over this question myself, and have come to a conclusion that works well for me. That is, it depends on the situation. These are the advantages of each for me, they may be different for you or someone else.
* I've been using them for 10 years and I can whip them up very quickly, and modify them very quickly.
* Relative to using styles, I would say tables are much easier to learn to use.
* Once you get good at them, you can learn to use them with minimum impact on size and page weight.
* Generally less markup which means less page weight and faster page load times.
* Allows you to dramatically change the layout of the page with little effort. The caveat to this is that you designed the layout of the page good to begin with. Also keep in mind, while this is cool, how often do you really need to do this?
* Can make pages more usable for visually impaired people because you are removing a lot of the style markup from the text being read.
Also keep in mind that even the hardcore style folks usually advocate using tables in some cases. When you are laying out data that is in a Excel Spreadsheet like format for instance.
To sum it up, I don't think there is a right or wrong way to do it. I use both depending on what my goal is. Get it out the door quick as possible? Very fast page load times? Usable for visually impaired?
As far as I know using DIV tags for the layouts are easier, but it depends of the website.
With DIV tag and CSS we can create a layout easily, but we should use some CSS tricks to create a better layout.
I have been using tables all the time until i recently met with a graphic layout designer who recommended me of using the div instead of table. I don't see the difference in terms of performance since the page isn't too loaded with data. But, what i have observed now is that, one should use table when there is a need to display data in a table formate. Think of a table like a Grid or container that shows the data you want it to be displayed.
I have Windows Vista Ultimate, IIS7. I am trying to deploy ASP.NET and silverlight applications on IIS7.
I am not able to add any application/virtual directory using the IIS manager. This was working fine 2 days ago. I am not sure what changed, and do not know where to look! Can you give me a lead on a solution?
I have an ASP GridView that has a PageIndexChanging event wired. I put the GridView in an asp:UpdatePanel and now my PageIndexChanging event does not fire when changing pages. Does anyone have a solution where I can use the UpdatePanel and have my event called as well?
