EXCEL SERVER TYPES

EXCEL SERVER TYPES is a branch on the configuration Tree in the Compute Server Tool.

EXCEL SERVER TYPES is a parent to EXCEL SERVER TYPE objects.

By specifying a name for an EXCEL SERVER TYPE an Administrator may group certain types of Excel Servers.

For example Excel Servers might be grouped:

  • By differing Excel versions
  • By type of Excel add-in needed for an EASAP
  • By preload enabled or not enabled

An Excel Server may associate with one or more EXCEL SERVER TYPEs via the Compute Server Config Tool via COMPUTE SERVER LIST > LOCAL EXCEL SERVER > Excel Server Types:

An Author will specify a particular EXCEL SERVER TYPE on the Tree via the EASAP Builder via SPREADSHEET LIST > SPREADSHEET > Excel Server Type:


An Example

Create two EXCEL SERVER TYPEs:

  • excel_server_type1
  • excel_server_type2

Bind an Excel Server to one of them:

  • Select COMPUTE SERVER LIST > LOCAL EXCEL SERVER
  • Set Excel Server Types: excel_server_type1
