Subject Re: help needed: 500 internal server error
Date Fri, 24 Sep 2004 14:54:11 GMT
thanks. we now don't use a static method, and it now WORKS!

However, we have another problem (or two). If we produce an excel report
it opens in a new browser. Then, with the first one still open, we produce
another excel report,
and we want it to open in another new browser window. However,
what happens is that the first excel browser window goes blank,
and the second excel browser window shows the original first
excel report. This happens on Windows NT.

Related to this, on my other computer with Windows XP, the
excel report opens in Excel (first with a dialog box to open or save).
It shows Excel.jsp [Read Only] (though it is not read only). If we
produce a new excel report on this computer, with the first one
still open, we don't get a new prompt box. All we get is that we
see the original excel report, and not the new one.

Any help would be appreciated.
THANKS,
Steve
