Provide Excel document in a shared drive to users


Hi all,

I have a requirement wherein i have to link an excel sheet which is in present in a Windows 2000 server to a NW Portal.

I have to make the document available to all the users so that they can edit the document online.

I have followed the below links for doing this.

I have created a repository by going into

Content Management/Repository Managers/File System Repository

I gave the Root Directory

name/prefix/lookupmode/security manager

The repository is created.

When i went into Content Admin to give the permissions iam not able to see the Repository over there.

I tried enabling security manager and disabling it.but it didnt worked out.

The userid which iam giving in SAP Portal has access to the shared drive.

It has the permissions on the document( read, write, or delete permissions).

Did User Mapping . Created System Alias.Have checked the network paths.

1.Can you tell me what configuration iam missing to view the repsoitory in

Cont admin / KM / Permissions.

2..The id has access to the document to edit but is it the id to use.

3. Is it possible to open a excel document in a shared drive directly and edit the document in shared drive and save there itself.If so what is the procedure.I dont want to open a folder when i click a iview.I want the excel sheet to be opened directly without asking whether to SAVE or OPEN.

Suitable answers wil be rewarded.
