Hello group,

I hope my quesiton won't sound stupid but I never had/used apple machines but I know there is an Microsoft Office version for Macs. I have written a COM Add-In Server for Excel and was wondering if I can use it for Excel installed on apples machines!!!

Is this possible?

Sorry, No as OSX does not support COM modules .. as it is a UNIX -based operating system.

Only Excel Macros are cross-platform (and even they are not always completely compatible)
