I'm thinking about moving my technology up to the '90s, so I'm wondering if WINZIP can accomplish what I want to do.

I have a couple of excel workbooks (one of which is about 10 meg and all are loaded with macros) and a few data files which need to be sent out to my clients. They need to be extracted and then saved onto the clients computer in a folder named 'xxx'. The folder needs to be created if it does not already exist.

One of the workbooks is actually an "installation" program for the rest of the workbooks and files. I would like that specidfic workbook to open automatically after extraction is complete.

I'm planning to buy WINZIP PRO, the Email Companion, and the SelfExtractor. Will this 'bundle' do any or all of the things I'm trying to do?

Thanks for your help,
Tom

Yes.it should.
Winzip will compress the file and the self extractor will extract
to a specified directory on the target computer.
I think you can even set it to execute a file if needed when
extraction completes.
If I remember correctly.there are settings you can set to make
sure the directory is created.
They have time limited trials available,so you can try it before you
buy it.
