Default Connect To An Excel File On A Remote Server

Hi Everyone,

I have an ASP aplication that is working well on one server. How do I connect an asp page to and Excel file located on a different server then the one the application is located on? The server the excel file is located on is a file server which password protected. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I don't know if you really want to do this even if you could. Can't you copy the Excel spreadsheet to the web server? Or try using Access or SQL to link to the Excel spreadsheet and get your data that way?
I use an Access database for OLAP on one web site, and I just copy and paste over it when there are updates (once every couple of months.)
If this is more dynamic, perhaps you should go to SQL Server.
