Install add-in , enable, disable , or remove find

An add- in is used to Cross-file provision of code (macros or custom functions ) and you can see by the file extension * .xla . To use an add-in , it must be installed and enabled.

Add- ins have the advantage that they are easy to pass by copying the * .xla file.
It is recommended that you save the add-in files in a specially created directory to keep things clear.



After installing and activating an add-in is available. All add- ins that are activated when you close Excel will be automatically loaded the next time you start Excel. In order to save resources and to shorten the Excel startup time, so should always be active only frequently used add-ins , less frequently used can be when they are installed , activated by enabling on demand and later disable (this will not remove ).

From Excel 2007, another way is described here as necessary.

How to install an add-in?

First of all is important that they know the file name and path of the file in question * .xla

How to remove an unnecessary add-in from the list?

To keep the list clearly , it is recommended that you no longer need to remove add-ins there. To do this:

    first disable the add -in that is to be removed from the list
    go to the Explorer
    Moving select an appropriate * .xla file in any directory; if you are sure that you will never need it more, you can also delete this file

    Switch back to Excel 
re-enable the add-in , which is to be removed from the list
Excel now provides you with a dialog because it does not find the file in the path; confirm the dialog thereby this add-in is removed from list of Add-Ins dialog box exit the dialog box by clicking OK

then go via Menu> Tools> Add -ins ... and the Add-Ins dialog box jumps
You will now see there all installed add- ins that are hooked Activated

when you click on an add-in ( uncheck ) this is highlighted in blue , and in most add-ins , please visit the list information , what do they do exit the dialog box by clicking OK

How do you find out in any installed add-in memory path ? 

The easiest way is to search in Explorer after the file name if it is known. In the list of Add-Ins dialog box few add-ins appear with their file names , but rather with a more or less meaningful description. If you do a search on the Explorer , the problem may be that you have the file saved several times and now you still do not know which one is the memory location of the installed add -ins.

If gives you the way through Explorer is no clarity , is recommended for VBA Experienced following procedure:

 select the Add-In

press the key combination Alt + F11 in order to open the window of the VBA development environment for-

    Open and activate with the key combination Ctrl + G to direct area
    Open and activate with the key combination Ctrl + R Project Explorer

Mark you now in the Project Explorer add-in file whose path you are looking for . The file name must then be highlighted in blue paste the following code in the Immediate window :? ThisWorkbook.Full Name then press the Enter key: Immediately you will receive in the Immediate window, the path including file name output.

You know this path and can use Visual Basic using the key combination Alt + F4 Close
 Remember, the add-in to disable it if it is not to be active

Tip: This way you can find out from each opened file storage path .
