Browser Back button is disabled on opeining Excel in the Brwoser (IE)


Hello All,

When I am opning the Excel in Brwoser (IE), excel is opened but the Back button is greyed out (disabled). I have to kill the application and restart it.

This is what I am doing in code …

excel.Save(“chart.xls”, SaveType.OpenInBrowser, FileFormatType.Default, Response);

I would really appreciate if anyone can provide me any lead on this.

Thanks in advance


Hi Krish,

Is the back button disabled when you run our feature demos? In my machine, it’s fine.


Hi Laurence,

We are using the licensed version.

I really appreciate your time helping me. Please let me know if you need more info.
