    Add-in Function - how to find it (Excel 2000)

    I have a function in an add-in, called say FX(), which is stored in the standard Excel add-in directory. When I use this function in a spreadsheet, it works fine and shows up in the cell as =FX().

    However when I move this spreadsheet to a different PC, Excel remembers the path to the add-in. The problem is the path is different on the new PC. e.g. Cocuments and SettingsUSERNAMEApplication DataMicrosoftAddIns. So the add-in function cannot be found and now displays in the cell as ='path to addin on old PC'FX().

    Is there a way to get Excel to look for functions in add-ins without remembering the path to the add-in?

    regards

    You have to install the Add-In to each PC which contains an Excel Application which will use it, and then Add it in to that Excel Application.

    I've solved the problem. Excel has two places for storing add-ins. If you let Excel find a home for the add-in it puts it in the USERS directory i.e. "Cocuments and SettingsUSER-NAMEApplication DataMicrosoftAddIns" and this will be different on each computer. But Excel also stores it's own add-ins in "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeLibrary" which is the same on each computer.
