Hello all,

we have a PB application that uses OLEObject to interface with an Excel sheet.

This application is published with Appeon Web and used thru IWA, i works fine.

We have to publish the same application with Appeon Mobile (for Ipad) so my question is : how to interface with Excel ?


Best regards.

Hi Philippe,

since Powerserver Mobile does not support oleobject, I suggest you have a .NET Web Service (which you can deploy from PB) and have it to use oleobject.

In other words, 1) manipulate the xls file from the WS and 2) call the WS from the mobile app to receive the xls. Once it lands on the client you can open it.
