Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you got excel installed on your web server? The 80070005 error is one I’ve usually seen as meaning that the system can’t find an object.

You are unlikely to successfully launch an application on a client machine partly for security reasons. I have done sometimes in our network but only because I can state the exact location of the program on the client and can launch it through a scripted command.
