  • Hi,

          As long as excel is available where CRM server can access this file in the CRM context, this is possible. So example is if the file is available as attachment against notes in CRM or file is available on some network storage where CRM has access to, you can achieve this. You will need to make sure that relevant office Dll is included in the workflow or plug-on assembly.


    Hope this helps.
