You just call it the same as any other package.
Bare in mind that it runs on the db server so can only interact with files that are on the db server. It can't see files on the web-server or client machine.

Is there a specific problem you are having?

Hi monster,

first of all thanks for the reply.

I need to copy a excel file, make some operations on the copied file, and then delete it. The excel file can be in another machine than the db server.

Do you know another package which would work for it?

Thanks again

Search this forum for 'excel' to see how other people are handling their 'escel' files.

Consider the 'DB_to_client' and 'AS_to_client' of 'webutil' to get the files to your PC.
