Hello, I have a question about the following: "AdvStringGrid1.LoadFromXLS()" when i use this in a machine without Excel installed, I get an OLE error message.

Is it possible to use "AdvStringGrid1.LoadFromXLS()" without having to install Excel on the machine running the program?

If you do not want Excel dependency, please use the component TAdvGridExcelIO
See: TMS Software | TAdvStringGrid Example

or use in combination with Flexcel:

Many thanks Bruno......much appreciated.
