Thank you all for the help on installing the exceltex package on my  
Mac OS X system. I needed the full background some of you gave me as  
the folder ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex didn't exist. Reading through  
you're e-mails this is what gave me a successful installation:

In ~/Library created the directories:


cp ~/Downloads/exceltex/exceltex.sty ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/ 

In ~/Library created a directory: Scripts

cp ~/Downloads/exceltex/exceltex ~/Library/Scripts/exceltex
chmod a+x ~/Library/Scripts/exceltex

in my ~/.proflle included the line:

	PATH=${PATH}:${HOME}/Library/Scripts; export PATH

Quit Terminal and start new session

The exceltex_0.5.01 download from http://www.physik.uni-freiburg.de/~doerr/debian/ 
  has a test file. It took me a while to find out that I should:
First typeset the test.tex (in the Terminal it didn't work but with  
Textmate it did)
Second in the Terminal: exceltex test.tex
Third typeset test.tex with Textmate again

and... I ended up with a beautiful set of tables.

Happy as a kid, thanks again for all help!
