    How install add-ins? (2003 11.8146.8132 SP2)

    I'd like to use the XIRR function and it wasn't pre-installed (OEM version of Office 2003 from Dell). How do I install Excel add-ins?

    I tried Settings / Control Panel / Add/Remove Programs. The three choices are

    Add/Remove Programs this only updated Office 2003
    Change Programs this only offered to re-install the whole Office 2003, which seems like major surgery for a hangnail
    Uninstall seems inappropriate

    Thanks for you help.

    Hi Joel

    This comes with the Analysis Toolpak

    Got Tools | Add-Ins and from the window that appears select Analysis ToolPak

    You would usually just go to the Tools Menu and select Add-Ins. In the dialog, select the add-in and choose OK. XIRR is part of the Analysis ToolPak.

    If you create your own Add-Ins, then you need to save it into the Add-Ins folder in the Excel directory usder the user. Once the add-in is saved nto that folder, you use the method above to activate it in Excel.
