When adding and saving or attempting to update a new Excel using OLE Media Object functionality in an application, a dialogue box appears "Do you want to save the changes made to "Worksheet in In-place container". If Yes or No is selected, the browser hangs and crashes.

The following steps are taken to encounter the issue

If Yes is selected, it prompt the user to save to their PC My Documents folder and defaults the file name as Worksheet in In-Place Container.xls.  This locks the EnterpriseOne applications which can only be shutdown using Windows Task Manager and then Excel worksheet is not saved.

If no is selected, a Windows Error displays and on selecting Excel, the application is opened to a blank worksheet.
