Chapter 7: Administration of Excel Services
Enable Assembly — Select this if you want to enable this assembly and allow the ECS to load and
use it. The default setting is to disable the UDF assembly. This feature gives you the option of
disabling a UDF assembly without needing to actually remove the UDF assembly from the list
of UDF assemblies.
Description — An optional field that you can use for documentation of the UDF assembly.
Command Line Options for User-Defined Function Assemblies
You can also administer UDF assemblies from the command line. The command-line interface supports
setting a value for each of the UDF assembly properties for the SSP in your farm. Unlike the web page
interface for managing UDF assemblies, which inherently knows which SSP is being administered, you
must specify the SSP name when working with this collection of properties through the command line.
The UDF assembly’s command-line feature does not support reading the existing list of UDF assemblies
or the property values. If you want to view the existing property values, use the SSP’s User-Defined
Function Assemblies administration page.
To work with this collection of properties through the command line, you must know the location of the
stsadm.exe file. This executable is installed on each MOSS server as part of the setup, and the file is located
in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\bin\, for example.
The syntax for working with the command line is fairly standard. See the “Command Line Options for
Trusted File Locations” section earlier in this chapter for an overview.
