Code, Macros, and Solutions
There are a number of features that allow users to extend the functionality of Excel on the client but are
not supported on the server.
Excel Services will not open a workbook that contains any of these features:
VBA (Visual Basic for Application) code that is embedded in the workbook and recorded
XLM (Excel macros)
Embedded ActiveX controls
Embedded OLE objects
Forms toolbar and control toolbox items
The recommended workaround for these features is to remove them before publishing the workbook
to the server.
