     You will need to install Microsoft Office on the server. You also face some considerable problems getting the permissions right. The account that you run the web site will have to be logged into interctively to run Excel at least once.

    You should also be prepared to log in to the server yourself whenever there is a problem. Word will lock up is there is an error, until it has an interactive user to report the porblem to. Excel is proably the same.

    Write your program such if any of the excel related code encounters an error, the code notifies you to log in and run Excel manually.
