[MetaCommand] Launch Excel in Web client

Hello everybody,

 

I would like to lauch Excel in the Web Client, using a MetaCommand with a VB Macro. The MetaCommand already exists and works fine using the Windows Client. It basically puts information from Hopex into an Excel file. I know how to make visible my MetaCommand in the Web Client but it seems that  the way how to run Excel in the Web Client is different and I would like to know how to do so.

 

Can anybody help me ?

Hi @CWaltking 

2 years later, I'm facing exactly the same issue... Could you find a solution at the end ?

Hello,

 

To my knowledge you cannot launch an Excel.exe from the server into the web front end. 

 

The logic has to be different !

 

For instance you could leverage Office 365 and open the web version of Excel inside HOPEX.

 

To interact with HOPEX Data you need to leverage the HOPEX REST API based on GraphQL starting from V3 CP3.

Hi @caly 

 

Yes. We implemented a MetaCommand to trigger a task in the HOPEX Scheduler executing the macro on the HOPEX server.

 

Best regards,
