The blogged wandering of Robert W. Anderson

Quote of the day, 10/30/2007

Today I was in a conference call doing a demonstration of the Digipede Network. 

One of the demos includes using Excel as a front-end to a distributed code-behind calculation.  A common follow on question was asked (heavily paraphrased),

what about code trapped in Excel workbooks?

The answer is, yes, we can (and have several customers that do) distribute Excel workbooks for distributed execution.  Our software moves the workbooks, launches Excel through COM, executes calcs in the workbook, saves them, and brings back the workbook. 

The prospect says,

That is both commendable and horrifying at the same time.

Heh. 

As is most of the work we’ve done to provide stable, registration-free COM contract for the Digipede COM users.
