I instructed my users to save the file as the older format when sending out of the company in this method:
And some companies have such a strangle hold on workstations and aversion to change that they don't even apply the update to allow Office 2003 to read newer documents.

Then the entire IT staff for those companies, or at least those making decisions, should be let go. The add-in should have been tested and rolled out quite some time ago.
I think we may be getting a little OT, the issue has been answered so let's wait for the OP to reply back

I always send the file as a PDF then recipients can't change my original! Well some really savvy ones can but they are rarely the danger!

Well, if that company is standardized on 2003 in house, and almost exclusively deal with internally created documents...what point is there is ensuring and rolling out additional add-ins that they aren't going to use/need? Lots of IT shops are short staffed, and have other more pressing things to worry about on a daily basis.

Yes, like my company, where I am the IT department, top to bottom. I agree with what you are saying, but in this case, there isn't much testing to be done. It isn't like testing a whole new Office suite.
