How to open an excel document in a webbrowser control

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :WPF
Hi,  I have an XBAP app that we would like to be able to open an Excel doc in a WebBrowser control but instead we always get prompted to opne in Excel.  Is this possible?  Here is what I have tried.  The reports are in SharePoint but we want to show them in our own application not SharePoint.       System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser ReportView = new System.Windows.Forms.WebBrowser();     WindowsFormsHost ReportViewHost = new WindowsFormsHost(); ReportView.Navigate(_fileName,   "_self", postBytes, "Content-Type: application/vnd.m?s-excel"); ReportViewHost.Child = ReportView;   _filename would be something like http://localhost/shared%20documents/myfile.xslsx Thanks for any suggestions.

Open Power point presentation in WebBrowser Control with out MS Office installation on the machine


I want to start a Microsoft Powerpoint presentation inside the WebBrowserControl. I followed the procedure in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304662
The PC only has Microsoft Powerpoint Viewer  and there is no office installed. The client does not want office installed on the machine

If  Microsoft office is installed the change of  the File type settings under Folder Options the 'Browse in same window' to true works but without MS office installation this setting is not available.

Please let me know the alternative to have the power point open in WebBrowser Control without MS Office.

Error When a Word Document is displayed in WebBrowser Control



We are using a WebBrowser control to display an MS Word document in a form. This was working fine for a long time, and now we tried to install this application in a new server. Now we are facing an issue. When we try to open the word document by using WebBrowserControl.Navigate method, it is asking the Open/Save dialog box, which is typically displayed when we download a file. Then if the user clicks on Open button, we are getting an error "Windows cannot find 'UsersTempFolder\1\Temp\MyDoc.DOCX'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.". Please note that UsersTempFolder\1\Temp\MyDoc.DOCX is NOT the path I have given in Navigate method. Also, if I click Save in open/save dialog box, I can save to a location and open it.

I don't have direct access to this server, but if I can believe the words of support person, every configuration is set same as our old server. Here is the details.

.NET Framework 3.0

MS Office 2003

Internet Explorer 6 SP2.

Could any one please help me to solve this issue? Any help is very much appreciated. Please let me know if you need any other details.

Hello good people, 

I have this beast as an error. Did my research and found some posts here as well but did not do any good for me. 

Here is what I did. I had an error regarding issue rights with COM objects so I gave access rights under component services for Microsoft Excel application now I am getting this error. 

Here is some information regarding this

1. Gave rights to ASPNET and network service to my web app directory to try to fix this error. 

2. The exact same process works on my Windows 2003 server and my Windows 7 development machine. I am trying to get this going on a different windows 2003 machine that is outside of our domain.

3. Developing on windows 7 64 bit with office 2010 installed. Also excel 2010 is installed on my Web server

4. Here is the code that is causing the error: The last line is causing the error.:

Unable to open pdf from document library MOSS 2007


When I click on a pdf document uploaded in a document library it comes up with a blank page. 

I guess it's trying to open pdf on the browser. I turned off "Display PDF in browser " option in Adobe Preferences, but it doesn't help, same issue.

I tried other browsers too, it's the same issue.

I am able to open all other pdf files local to my machine fine.

I am using IE 8 on my machine (Windows 7) and the Sharepoint server is MOSS 2007.



Can I open the "new" menu in a SharePoint Document Library using Dragon NaturallySpeaking?


When a user, who uses Dragon NaturallySpeaking, says "new" when viewing a Document Library the default content type is selected and the associated application (e.g. Microsoft Word) is launched. This scenario is okay for Content Type selection since the Microsoft Office applications will prompt for the metadata once the file is saved.

If the user needs to create new folders in the Document Library however they need to expand the "new" dropdown menu.

What is the best way for someone using Dragon NaturallySpeaking to expand the "new" menu for a Document Library in SharePoint?

Check-out issue when opening a document from a document library when a read-only copy is open

We have an issue when a user has a read-only copy of a document from SharePoint open and then tries to check-out and edit another copy of the document (i.e. from the document library) the checked out copy is not connected to the web server. For the user it will look the same they will make edits, save and then close, but when they do so the document is not updated in SharePoint - it may be saved locally in their SP drafts, but the user will think that they have lost their version. We then get the checked out to another user error and you have to discard changes to get the document working again. Steps to reproduce this issue: * click on the name of a office doc on a Document Library * Make sure "Read Only" is selected and click "ok" * Minimize open document * click on the same file on the Document Library * Make sure "check out and edit" is selected and the "Use my local drafts folder" checkbox is ticked. Select OK. * Edit document and press save. Changes are never saved back in SharePoint, they are only on the local draft. We are using MOSS with SP2. Clients are on Office 2003 and 2007 Is this normal behaviour? Is there anything that can be done to prevent this from happening?
