ASP to Excel Image Alignment Problems

Hello,

I'm exporting an ASP page to Excel using 'Response.Conte ntType =
"applicatio n/vnd.ms-excel"' and it is working fine for the most part
except the particular page I'm exporting has images, and no matter
what style/alignment/etc. that I provide to the <tdtag that
contains
the <imgtag, it always left-aligns the image in the Excel cell.
Has anyone had any success with controlling the alignment of images
when exporting from ASP to Excel using
'Response.Conte ntType = "applicatio n/vnd.ms-excel"'? If so, would
you
be willing to share your secret?

Thanks in advance!

Create a Workbook yourself as you would ideally have it, then save it as a
web page. You can open the resulting .htm file in NotePad or similar and
see the source that has been generated - including all the styles. Then use
that as the template for your generated file.

Now the secret's out.....

Your MIME type is only causing IE to load the HTML you're sending into
Excel - you're not actually sending an Excel file (so technically your MIME
type is wrong). This is not an ASP issue, this is an Excel HTML conversion
issue and you'd be better off asking on an Excel group or searching the web
for articles on formatting HTML correctly for Excel to handle it the way
you'd expect it to be handled.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows.
