Hi Nazih,

First I would like you to ask you two things:

1. Make use of the search here on SDN to find a solution to your problem. A similar question was actually asked yesterday!

2. Please be more generous to the ones that answer your question. Looking through your old threads I barely see the use of any stars.

Now to you question. As mentioned before I just summarized yesterday a list of notes that should help find a solution to problems with local editing, and now I just added this list to the Wiki for others to make additions:

Hope it will be helpful for you,

Sure, Thank you very much.

Issue is now solved. we have activated ActiveX in KM Settings (Portal) and it works fine and quickly.

Regards, Nazih
