Real Time updates
We have recently purchased a version of Xcelsius Engage 2008 version 184.108.40.206 and have problems with real time updates when linking to an existing Excel sheet that has auto refresh queryu2019s the sheet is updating as expected but neither the preview nor exported flash files update. Is it possible to do the above with this version of Xcelsius?

It sounds like you have a connection tied to the Excel spreadsheet which updates your data. If this is true, then this will not update the SWF file produced by Xcelsius. When previewing or exporting the SWF file, it only translates the data/formulas used in Excel in actionscript to produce a self-contained SWF file. The connection between the SWF and the original Excel file is then severed.
The Xcelsius SWF files can only be updated in run-time via XML or web services.
