Office Webpart

  Asked By: Diamond    Date: Apr 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1592

I want a create a web part from where the users can click on the icon of
any office application and go. For example, World or Excel icon would be
available on the web part and clicking on it respectively will open a new
word or excel program. Has anyone come across this kind of web component for
Office XP ?. Well, I have checked in the MSDN Library and there's just a
component which does something with Excel spreadsheet and not with exact
application link.

copy them in the 'DocTypeIcons' folder.

How do I enable ActiveX controls on my browser. When I try to run this web  part
it errors out and tells me I need to enable ActiveX. I do not see that option
in Internet Options.

Is it not a setting in the appropriate security zone?
