Can not open excel worksheet in vbscript.

Can not open excel worksheet in vbscript.

Can not open excel worksheet in vbscript.

(OP)
hi,
I had a vbs application that used this with excel 2008
they installed excel 2013 on our machines and now the code below doesn't work:
[code]
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
msgbox "excel application started"
objExcel.DisplayAlerts = 0
objExcel.Workbooks.open excelfile, false, true
[/codd]
any ideas on how to make this work?
thanks.

RE: Can not open excel worksheet in vbscript.

And what error you get if you try to run the script?
For example, look at the file path in the variable excelfile.
Does the file path in the variable above really exists? Didn't the location of the excel file changed ?

RE: Can not open excel worksheet in vbscript.

CODE

Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application") 
objExcel.Visible = True
msgbox "excel application started" 
objExcel.DisplayAlerts = 0 
objExcel.Workbooks.open excelfile, false, true 

Note that you don't show where you are defining the excel file to open so be sure that is defined.

I hope that helps.

Regards,

Mark
