Scaling Excel 2000

Hi there,

I would like to know if it is possible to use GigaSpaces with Excel 2000? If yes, can you provide some pointers to relevant technical information?

It was never tested for Excel 2000. The Excel Space viewer tool will not work for 2000 since the API is not the same as newer versions. As for using UDF/RTDs and the VB space. I guess you can you can try and see how it works though you have to keep in mind that the .NET product supports only .NET 2.0 and up.

unfortunately, Excel 2000 doesn't have automation add-in UDF and RTD. Any other options that you can suggest?
