    Couple of Questions

    First, is it possible to automate Excel through a COM component when an
    NT/2k machine does not have an interactive session running?


    Second, anyone know of a good place to get information on creating Windows
    installer service installs? Something with a little more complex examples
    other than creating a setup for Notepad? A book on the subject would be
    wonderful.

    If you mean that Excel isn't running before you do automation, then Yes. By
    doing:

    Set xlApp = New Excel.Application

    .... you automatically load an instance of the application invisibly.
