Excel Web Viewer and UNC Files

leave a comment »

I’ve found several things for Excel Web Access (Excel Services):

1. Excel Services (so Excel Web Access) works fine with UNC path "out-of-the-box"

http://server/_layouts/xlviewer.aspx?id=file://sp001/excel/test.xlsx

and we can !view! files using forward-link. 

2. file://sp001/excel/ – trusted UNC Path for Excel Sevices. We just need make user files path as Excel Sevices trusted path and think about rights.

3. Bad – file opened from UNC couldn’t be edited, just files stored at Sharepoint Server.

4. It’s possible to override xlViewer.aspx to get our parameters or make some logic (push, poll and so on) if needed I think – hardcode.

I’m a glad a little.
