Where does the compiler store any "files required for your application" such as a template Excel Workbook?

I have a compiled application that copies template worksheets from a template workbook, and adds them to the user generated workbook. When I compile the program, the name of the template workbook shows up in he list of "Files Required for your Application". However, I do not see any Excel workbooks anywhere under Program Files where the application installs to. The program seems to run on my computer, but I am worried that may only be because it was developed on the computer. I worry that when I try to install this on other computers, the Excel workbook will not be found.

Files which were included in "Files required for your application to run" are to be included in a standalone exe file created by MATLAB Compiler. So, even though the file is not found in the application install folder, it's fine because the file is included in the exe.
When the exe runs, the attached file is extracted in MATLAB Runtime's cache folder.
For example,
C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Local\Temp\YOUR_USER_NAME\mcrCache9.5\xxxxx0\yyyyy
(where xxxxx is an application name and yyyyy is a function name)
