  1. hi there

    i need to generate excel files on this website and im using the Microsoft Excel Object library to do this, Ive copied the dll to the bin directory of my site so nothing is missing, but i keep getting this error
    there is nothing wrong with my code, ive tested it thoroughly on my development pc and it all works

    Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {00024500-0000-0000-C000-000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80040154.

    any ideas?

    I believe you will need the actual MS Excel application installed on the server. Unfortunately because we are a shared hosting environment we cannot install MS Excel directly on the server.
  3. i thought maybe something similar, thanks for letting me know anyway
