    How do I create an Executable excel file. I have used no macros in my
    workbook only formulas. I have not used Visual Basic.

    I basically want to be able to provide my workbook to people so they can use
    it whether they have Excel or not.

    Hi Stephen,

    Your users must have a copy of Excel.

    Or the free Excel Viewer.
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...f4-996c-4569-b547-75edbd03aaf0&displaylang=EN

    Or the free Open Office can read Excel files.

    Depends what you mean by "use".

    Use as in add data into the workbook and save it.

    I didn't think the Excel Viewer could do that.

    Stephen,
    You're correct. The Viewer is only for, err, viewing.
    Unless you want to understand the BIFF8(??) format used by Excel or shell
    out for Office/Excel, Open Office is the only free way.
