How do I install an Add-In

Click on download, and save to a safe location on your C drive. Once copied, it should be installed by;

  1. Opening any spreadsheet, or starting a blank one.
  2. Select Tools, Add-Ins…, and then click Browse.
  3. Locate the add-in you saved in the step above, and click OK.
  4. The add-in will then be copied to your add-in directory (usually this is "C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\Application Data\Microsoft\AddIns"), and the name will appear in the list of add-ins with a tick against it.
  5. Finally, the macro security should be set to Medium. To set or check this, choose Tools, Options, select the Security tab, and click the Macro Security… button, then choose Medium.

Once the Add-In is in place, it should automatically create or add to a toolbar with a new icon particular to the add-in installed.

Re-installing :

Follow the above steps - you will be asked if you want to overwrite the existing file (answer yes !)
Make the existing toolbar invisible by dragging it down into the spreadsheet itself (so it becomes a floating toolbar) and clicking on the X - close). The new toolbar will be shown next time Excel is opened.
