Well, we're working on porting it over from linux but at the moment that's
my only option... I just had this impression that I'd seen something whereby
I could write to the filesystem using an external method.

Subject: RE: [Zope] probably a simple answer..
Well, I can suggest how I might approach it, which might be different
than what you intend... but for what it is worth...
First, run Zope on a Windows server so you can interact with an Excel
file as an ODBC Data Source (DSN). You could setup a Zope/ODBC
adaptor Product like zodbc or (better) mxODBC in Zope. Then in
Windows control panel, setup an ODBC DSN to the Excel file, and
create a Zope/ODBC connection in the ZMI. Then you might be able to
use ZSQL methods, or Python if you perfer, perhaps using SQL or the
Windows API, to write to the Excel spreadsheet. You might have to use
some sort of external file storage for the Excel file, i.e. I'm not
sure how you could store the Excel file in the ZODB and still
interact with it and expose it through Zope, though that might be
Like Andreas said, you can't write to a users file system directly,
if that's what you meant.
