We are running server scripts which instantiates and manipulates Excel objects on the click of buttons.
Here is a the section that instantiates this:
ob_ExcelApp = COMCreateObject("Excel.Application");
ob_ExcelApp.Application.Visible = true;
ob_ExcelApp.Application.DisplayAlerts = false;
ob_ExcelApp.Application.ScreenUpdating = false;

The script runs fine on the dedicated and local clients, but when we run this through the Web Client we get the error:
“Unable to create OLE Object” (Screen shot of error message is attached)

Pls advise. Are we missing something?
