- From the toolbar, click Menu, point to Excel Add-in, and click Install Excel Add-in.
Note: Be sure that MS Excel is not open on your machine prior to selecting Install.
An install complete message appears.
- Click OK.
Note: Follow steps 1-2 above to also uninstall the Excel Add-in.
- Alternatively, you can use the Excel button on the toolbar to install the Excel Add-in. Click the Excel button, and when prompted to install, click Yes.
Note: The Excel button appears in the toolbar after Excel API Access is enabled in the CME Direct Admin tool.
When updates are available for the Excel Add-in, an upgrade option will be added automatically to the Menu.
