QV9 / Ajax : Alternative way to "Send To Excel" in QV10?

Hi,

we use QV9 to make an AJAX Version of a QV-Document available on the internet. When customers use the "send to excel" functionality, a file is created and then being downloaded. This, however, assumes that you configure the QV Server to output the file to a path that is accessible by the webserver. In our scenario, security policies forbid to store user-related data on a webserver - even temporarily - which is why we had to create a really ugly workaround.

Opposed to this, the QV Plugin sends Excel data as a stream, not generating a temporary file on the server's harddisk.

What I'd really like know : does the QV10 Ajax client support streaming XLS-Data? We really have to get rid of our Workaround, as it is super slow (based on Webservices and custom server-side action)...

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi!

QV9 AJAX used the virtual directory "QVPrint", from where a user basically downloaded the excel-sheet.

In QV10 AJAX the need of "QvPrint"-folder is gone.
Now the enduser gets the excelsheet from a path similar to :

http://qvsserver/QvAJAXZfc/QvsViewClient.aspx?public=only&size=long&host=QVS@autwls-rva02&name=Temp/3bce2df149fd4652b04dc61c0103ce62.xls

One must say that the .xls is still stored on the QVS to allow the download; so I'm not quite sure it this fulfills your security policy.
