Retrieving XL output in the workbook that generated it

Our customer has created an XL file which has values and a button.
In the button there is a URL which calls a Focexec using
http://{server}/ibi_apps/WFServlet?IBIF_ex={fexname}...params
  

The fex produces an XL output.
The customer would like to have the XL output returned into the calling XL workbook.

Any ideas?

Hi Danny,
Depending on server setup maybe Microsoft Web Query is something to leverage here? Other option would be QuickData but that is licenced.

You should be able to use VBA to call the fex. Change the results to xml, then you can process the reuslts back into the spreadsheet.

Daniel,

Maybe WebQuery's in XL can do the trick.
