    Add-in installation (Excel2003)

    I am writing my first Excel application. I have created an Excel spreadsheet with plenty of validation on it. I now want to include a little bit of code to help save the spreadsheets as text files, with a toolbar on it. I have been reading books/websites about Excel Add-ins and I think it is the way to go to put the code and the toolbar behind the add-in. What I am finding hard to understand is how best to distribute the add-in and install it. This Excel application will be downloadable from the web - so I don't know where people are going to install it etc.. Is there a fairly easy to follow method of installing the add-in and spreadsheet? I imagine it will be updated from time to time (as validation rules change etc..), so the add-in will need to be replaced each time it is downloaded.

    You will probably find Jan Karel Pieterse's series of articles Create Addins useful, as well as Update An Addin and Addin Installation.
