Creating EXCEL documents and background jobs

Hi there,

I was wondering whether the method 'SAVE_DOCUMENT_TO_URL' of the interface 'i_oi_spreadsheet' will work when called in a background job with the intention to store the information somewhere on the SAP servers filepath ...

If so then I would assume that one needs to install both SAPGUI and MS EXCEL on the server to get it actual working?

Thx,

Steven

    Even installing these things on the server will not help. When a program runs in the background it has no connection to any front-end session (even one running on the server). If you need to create Excel in the background, you can always create text tab delimited files. Excel opens these just fine but you can't get fancy with the formatting.
