I have a reference to excel8.olb in my vb5 app.  What must I include in my installation package relative to excel?  At this point I'm including excel8.olb, but perhaps this isn't necessary.  The users have Microsoft Office 97 installed on their pc's.

Unfortunatly, you cannot include any of the Office 97 .olb files in your VB setup.  EVERY user that uses your program must have Office 97 installed on their machine.  That is the only way to distribute these files.  As long as each machine has Office 97 installed, then you don't have to worry about including anything extra in your setup program.
