You cannot use Excel 7.0 or Excel 97 because they don't understand the macros that were used for the MathLink software. You cannot use Mathematica 3.0 because the version 3.0 MathLink protocol does not have support for links to 16-bit apps. Compatibility info for MathLink products for Excel and Word for Windows and Macintosh can be found at URLs: http://www.wolfram.com/support/MathApps/Excel/WhichVersions.html http://www.wolfram.com/support/MathApps/Word/WhichWordVersion.html -- P.J.
