default open file in excel RRS feed

  • Question

  • In the reports library, I would like the default action upon clicking an excel file to be opening the file in the user's excel.  How do I do this? 

    I have tried setting Reports Library > Settings > Advanced Settings > Browser-enabled Documents to "open in the client application".  That setting says: "Specify how to display documents that are enabled for opening both in a browser and a client application. If the client application is unavailable, these documents will always be displayed as Web pages in the browser".  But it does not do what I want.

  • Use a regular doc lib instead of a reports lib.
