Hi all

Well, I just found out on Orlando's website that a freeware application had just been coded, enabling you to generate stand-alone exe application from simple excel spreadsheets, along with some quit fantastic features. The file's name is "XltoEXE", you can check it out on this link

http://cpap.com.br/orlando/

--> My problem: I can not open it!! I get a "Stop statement encountered". Has any of you guys tried it and managed to operate it? It sounds really great on paper...
--> From how little I have been able to understand from south-american XL forum, it's got something to do with the excel 10.0 object library

Any idea(s) is(are) welcome!

Cheers

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

The Excel 10.0 Object Library comes with Office XP. If you use a different version you will have a different library referenced in your code environment: 8.0 for 97, 9.0 for 2000, 11.0 for 2003.

You can check if this is the problem by doing the following:
1. Alt+F11 to go into the code editor
2. Tools > References
3. Check to see if any are listed as MISSING. If so, uncheck the dud reference, scroll down the list, and select the highest matching version that you can find.
4. Click OK and try again.

Hi

Sorry for not posting for a long long time; I found that asking the author directly would be a good idea, and I got a reply. Actually his appli only operates on Windows for which default language is "US". If you use a different windows language default setting (in my case, Korean), then you get the Stop statement encountered error message. I therefore changed my settings and it worked. Unfortunately, I have to go back to Korean (even though I have a Windows XP in English, with unicode support) as default, otherwise I cannot read emails in Korean, Korean websites etc.
If anybody has a workaround for that, let's hear it!!

Cheers

I used the file and my XLS file was converted to an EXE.
My problem is I have a copy and save command button and send email that copies a selection of the active sheet and saves it and the second email it. But both of this buttons are not working proprely in the converted version.
Please help.
Thanks
