Invalid Page Fault

I have a client that is unable access the Excel generated output. We have 5 or 6 different machines outside of thier network that tested fine, however all the users at the client site are unable to access. A message flashes indicating downloading file, then this displays:

Any thoughts? They are running IE 5.0 and 6.0 with Office 2k.


Please tell me the Excel version that can access the files well.

Excel 2000 is being used by the ones that work and the ones that do not. I recently saved off the excel file that was created on a working machine and emailed it to the client, who opened it without a problem. At this point, I am wondering if the problem is related to the filename. Since we have a wealth of users exporting reports that do not need to save them on the server, currently we are using:

return excel;

as oppose to…);

when i do a save as, here is what displays:


correction…the previous post is misleading…we are using .save


Could you paste your code in the forum? So I can investigate what cause this prolbem.


I changed to .OpenInExcel to fix the problem. There were security issues with OpenInBrowser. Thanks.
