How about this: When the user pushes the function key, prompt for an email address, create a comma delimited file, and email it as an attachment to the email address supplied. (you could simplify this process if you maintain a table of email addresses) Another method that I've used quite successfully is to embed a MS Query query into an Excel spreadsheet. You can have the user click on a button to kick off the query which refreshes the data in the spreadsheet with the contents of the workfile. -----Original Message----- From: Suren Surendra [mailto:suren@xxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Wednesday, March 02, 2005 4:04 PM To: SYSTEM21@xxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [SYSTEM21] Re:- Down loading AS/400 file to excel Dear All We have a custom made sub file program to show sales history and trying to have a function key to extract what ever data shown on the as/400 screen to download into excel. The data is stored in a work file in AS/400 and using client access I was able to get it from Excel menu. Does anyone know a different method as we only have one license for CL. I am looking for a simple method for end users. Tried ODBS without much success.
