Hi, this is a noob and simple question, that's why I'm asking it here

Does Excel udf use microsoft excel from office suite? I look into udf's code and only saw this ObjCreate("Excel.Application"), which made me wonder if it can run without excel being installed

Sorry if this question is stupid.


Heroes, there is no such thing

One day I'll discover what IE.au3 has of special for so many users using it.
C'mon there's InetRead and WinHTTP, way better

The Excel UDF needs Excel to be installed.
But there are other UDFs abvailable that allow to read and write Excel workbooks (in a limited way) without the Excel product being installed.
