Using Automation DataType with RTC

In the classic client, I have been using Excel Automation Datatype in order to do some exporting to Excel. I use this instead of the Excel Buffer specifically to make it easier to stick formulas into Excel Cells (like =(A2+B4+C6) / 3) instead of dumping a hard coded value into the Excel dump.

This runs great in the Classic client, but when I add it to a page and try to run it in the RTC I get the following error:

"This message is for C/AL programmers: Unable to create an instance of Automation Server Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.ApplicationClass with CLSID = 00024500-0000-0000-0c000-000000000046 Retrieving the Com class factory for component with CLSID {000024500-0000-0000-C000-0000000000046} failed due to the following error: 80070005.."

So ... is this something that no longer works when using the RTC?

    I have answered my own issue - it seems I can collect the cell information using the ExcelBuffer functionality. But I would be intersted in knowing if teh automation objects can be used with the RTC at all.

    Automation objects works just fine with the RTC and you can select whether you want them to be loaded on the Service Tier or the Client Tier.

    CREATE(var) or CREATE(var, TRUE) - creates on Service Tier.
    CREATE(var, TRUE, TRUE) - creates on the Client Tier.

    I don't know whether this can be the problem.

    I think there are some types (don't know which) which are not supported on RTC and events are not supported either.
