How to Install Add-ins Excel 2007 and 2010
Save the add-in to your computer. You can put this add-in along with your other add-ins in Excel or any location you see fit.
Open Excel and click the Office Button (i.e., window in the upper left had corner) and select Options
The following will open up; go to the ‘Add-Ins’ section:
Toward the bottom of the screen, ensure that ‘Excel Add-ins’ is selected in the drop-down box and select ‘Go’. The following will open:
Select ‘Browse…’ and go to the location where you saved the add-in, select it, then choose OK. Note: When you click Browse, your add-in folder opens, so if you saved the file to your add-in folder, you shouldn’t need to browse any further. Also, in 2007 and 2010, once it’s saved to the add-in folder, it should show up in the dialog box in Step 3.
Check the box associated with the add-in(s) you want and choose ‘OK’. The add-in will now be functional each time you open up Excel.
