Is it possible to perform ole automation from within a geoprocessing service? For example, create an Excel file, populate it, format it, and then save it. I have an external executable that performs some database queries and then does Excel automation to create a formatted Excel file. I have published the external exe as a geoprocessing service, and the database queries are performed. The Excel automation is not. I'm not sure how to enable this automation process within the gp service.
