How to export a Table Object to a User defined Directory as undelimited file?

I have a table object that I want the User to save the results of their selection to a directory of their choice.  Also the file has to conform to strict specifications (un-delimited, fixed width, no quotes).

I have tried:

  • using the Export action (Button) and I get zero results.
  • wrote VBscript (macro) using FSO (preferred).
  • using IE Client instead of AJAX for AccessPoint accessing the application.

NOTE: Everything works fine using the desktop -- does not work launching the application from AccessPoint (AJAX). I have the server set to run macros and export to Excel.

  1. Is there another setting on the Server that I need set?  I have not found any information on any other settings.
  2. Do certain permissions need to be set on the Server for the User to have the ability to download?

Re: How to export a Table Object to a User defined Directory as undelimited file?

As a follow up I was able to get the application to behave as designed by having the Users install the IE Client Plugin.

The AJAX version just cannot hold a candle to the IE Client Plugin with it comes to Macros and pure aesthetics of the application.

I plan on using the AJAX Client for tablets and smartphones with reluctance!
