Excel open issue in WS_EXECUTE


Hi Team,

I have a report which has a 'Download to Excel' custom button, which uses 'WS_EXECUTE' FM to open an excel sheet and user can then save or close the excel and return to program. This functionality runs fine in most of the user's machine but in some user's machine (irrespective of the userid), when the excel opens, it give the below message in status bar at the bottom

" Running C:\PROGRA~2\MICRO~3\Office14\EXCEL.EXE' (and waiting)'... " and control does not return to the report even after the excel is closed. It works fine in the Dev and Test system on the same user's system.

Any idea what this message means and why does it occur in only on some user's machine ?

Thanks and Regards
