Office Web Apps - View in Excel not present

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I installed on out SharePoint 2010 server Office Web Apps. With some problems I finally could get Word and PowerPoint working. I had an issue where Edit in browser of both formats worked fine, but View did not. I threw an some errors. My event viewer displayed SQL Server error complaining about SPService account does not have permissions to sertain WSS_Content_ database. The viewers started to work after I granted the Account some priviliges.

But now I can't seem to get Excel working in Web Apps. On Excel files I won't have the required actions (Edit in browser and View in browser). I also noted that on Central Administration Manage Service Application -> New doesn't have the Excel Viewing Service possibility.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Office Web Apps Feature Not Present After Install



We have an existing SharePoint 2010 farm that has been stood up as a Test tier.  We were asked to add Office Web Apps.  After reviewing the TechNet articles regarding the installation and configuration, when going to activate the feature, whether through the individual sites or using PowerShell, we're noticing that the feature isn't present.  Is there something not in the documentation below that would account for this?  I'm finding this very odd.  Thanks in advance!

Does WSS 3.0 come with the filters for searching MS Office Documents or do you have to have MS Office installed on WSS 3.0 Server?

Office backstage view not displaying workflow options and workflow banners not appearing

I am running the SharePoint 2010 Contoso RTM vhd (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=751fa0d1-356c-4002-9c60-d539896c66ce&displaylang=en) and want to access how Office 2010 participates in workflows.  I have created a new document library, configured a workflow on the document library and have selected the "Connect to Office" button. However I cannot see any workflow banners appearing on documents that have pending tasks and I cannot see the workflow options in the backstage "Save & Send" screen.  My document library is however available and displayed in the "Save to SharePoint" locations. I built a 32 bit Windows 7 client to see if that worked, but I get the same issue.
