Possibilities with .Net / ESE api

HI All,

I need to call a portal application on the click of a button on the excel sheet. Is there any possibility that I click on the button on my excel sheet and in the background I call a portal application.

This excel sheet is stored in my KM, when I click on it, it opens inside a browser window.

Also, please help me with the link for .Net api that I can use with my portal applications.

    Hi S.B.,

    you don't need a button or makro.

    You can simply use the HYPERLINK function of Excel.

    The following example opens the SDN homepage at the location and displays the text "Click to enter SDN":

    =HYPERLINK("","Click to enter SDN")

    Best regards,

      Hi Andre,

      Thanks. This was helpful. But how do I call a component in a par file on the click of this hyperlink. When I click on this hyperlink, it redirects me to I do not want to redirect the user to some other site. I want to read the data in the excel and send it to ECC function module.

      I have already been able to read the excel sheet and call a function module to pass the data. This part is happening. I have achieved this with JSPDynpage.

      Now, I would want to call the par file that does the above (read excel and pass data to ecc) on the click of the hyperlink, the execution happens in the background, but the excel sheet still remains in front of the user.

      Thanks for all your help.
