I know ASP is old and i should move to ASP .net, but i need to open word and excel documents with the relative application (thus not within IE). Can you help me ? Thanks

Well, i found a way to do it, here is the code:

Sub OpenWorkbook(strLocation)
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
objExcel.Visible = true
objExcel.Workbooks.Open strLocation
objExcel.UserControl = true
End Sub

It works, however there is still an issue: when i run the script from an asp page, i'm prompted (each time) to enter user/password. I do that, and i also check the 'remember password' box, but every time i get the same user/password prompt request...

This issue happens also when editing web sites with Frontpage, it doesn't remember passwords. I don't think there is anything wrong with this server, because i experimented the same problem also on other Windows 2003 servers.
Any idea ?
