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.

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 possible. Like Andreas said, you can't write to a users file system directly, if that's what you meant. -- Harlow Pinson Indepth Learning Email: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Phone: 505 994-2135 Fax: 505 994-3603 _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
