Versions of The Formulator for Excel 95 (7.0) and earlier will probably never be available. If you are interested in using The Formulator on Excel 95 or earlier, please let me know, and be sure to mention what version or versions of Excel you are interested in running it on.


Excel 95 (7.0)

Excel 95 (7.0) would require a new theformulator.xla. Requires doing a few things in older, more tedious ways.


Excel 5.0

Excel 5.0 (except for the little-used 5.0 for NT) is a 16-bit EXE, and The Formulator is a 32-bit DLL. A 16-bit EXE can't call a 32-bit DLL. I would need to write a 32-bit EXE to interface between Excel 5.0 and The Formulator. COM in Windows automatically does the thunking (bitness translation) between a 16-bit EXE and a 32-bit EXE. And, no problem calling The Formulator from the 32-bit EXE.

Excel 5.0 was released in late 1993.


Excel 4.0 and earlier

Excel 4.0 and earlier would require a DDE interface. Excel 4.0 was released in 1992.
