HI Jack May
No, In 9.3.1 version you don't have an option to embed the excel datasource that we saved it in the shared drive. When i am trying to publish the workbook by unchecking the "Include external files" when we publish
i got the below warning message.
We do have an option to publish the excel datsource (Live connection) to server .
While publishing again when we uncheck "Include external files" we saw the below warning.
So, What i say is we have to include the external files or else we need to make sure that we gave the necessary access for the users whoever uses this datasource and its workbooks.
If I publish the excel source to the server, a viz built from that source won't reflect ongoing changes to the excel spreadsheet. Are you saying that all users of the viz need access to the excel spreadsheet? I thought that we could make the viz dynamic on the server by giving the run-as user permissions to the source.
