    Information and Images published to desktop

    Hi all,

    As the title says how you do (if at all) publish data/images to your desktop for staff to see?

    I normally use BGInfo for the bit of text here and there but I've been asked to publish detention lists from an excel spreadsheet to all desktops every Thursday and a another list on Fridays, then the normal desktop to resume for the start of the next week.

    Is there anyway of doing this, we are using Windows 7 with Server 2008 R2.


    Much appreciated.



    Edward

    if its an image of an excel sheet (to display the actual sheet you would have to force excel to open every logon for staff and i suspect that wouldnt go down well) you could use gpp to replace the background image with a bacground image + pic of excel sheet on a set day then copy the normal one back later

    you could always dump it to a txt file or possibly even now i think about it get excel to save it as a web page and force load that
