    How many excel processes can you open?

    Hi,

    i have created a web application which opens an excel sheet, enters some
    data, calculates the data and retrieve the outcome of the calculation. This
    application will be used by lots of people. Now i have heared that not too
    many excel processes can be opened on the server (about 5). What is true
    about this? Will this be a problem for me?

    Thanks,

    Stanley

    From what I understand, neither Excel nor the other Office components are
    not supported to run in a server environment. Doesn't mean you can't, but
    it's not design for it. I can't find a link at the moment to back that up at
    the moment, so I may be mistaken.
    I suppose the limit of instances would be determined by memory:

    You would need to take of instance not closing as expected.

    Too many negatives: "..neither Excel nor the other Office components are
    supported..."

    Having said that, does this help ?

    Hi Nick, thnx for the response. So it sounds plausible that you can open as
    many excel processes as you can as long as memory accepts it. Think that
    won't be a problem than.
    Also, i have read that automating excel through web application is not
    supported. But i did manage to get it working. I only need to insert data,
    call a macro and read the outcome. I'm not doing any strange things with the
    excelsheet.

    Regards,

    Stanley
