Back from vacation, and Shane gives us office web parts!

For those of my readers who have been wondering why I havent posted anything in the last several weeks, it is because I was visiting family and friends in Israel and therefore did not discover anything new about sharepoint.

I returned to find that Shane (a sharepoint mvp) has discovered something I was worried about - how to add the office web components web parts (pivot chart, pivot table and worksheet) to MOSS2007

  • First find the cab file (microsoft.office.dataparts.cab) for the web part from a 2003 server
  • Copy the file to the 2007 server
  • Run the following command on the 2007 server:
    stsadm.exe -o addwppack -filename "c:\program files\common files\micrsofot shared\web server extensions\60\wppacks\microsoft.office.dataparts.cab" -globalinstall

I will soon be back with my own sharepoint tips, so be patient!
