Anyone know any code to check to see if the MSQuery is selected on a machine when a file is opened?

Also, if it is not selected as an add-in on the machine, could code be written to automatically select it?

TIA

Hello,

How about this?

Code:
Sub InstallMSQueryAddin()
If Application.AddIns("MS Query Add-in").Installed = False Then
    AddIns("MS Query Add-in").Installed = True
End If
End Sub

Thanks Dan
Works Great. I have to send this file to about 30 people in field offices who seldom use Excel and I wanted to avoid including instructions and getting phone calls from the instructionally challenged.
