Installing TransTools for Excel

Excel

To install TransTools for Excel, download the automatic installer or the manual installation zip package.

There are two ways to install the program:

  1. Automatically: run TransTools_Installer.exe and follow the installer instructions.
  2. Manually

After you complete the installation process:

  1. Enable (activate) TransTools for Excel.

    Open Microsoft Excel.

    • Excel 2007 or later:

      Note: this step is not required if you use the Automatic Installer ver. 1.1.0 or greater.

      Open Excel Options dialogue by clicking the large Microsoft Office icon in the top left corner (Excel 2007) or File tab (Excel 2010+) and then clicking Excel Options button or Options menu at the bottom. In Excel Options dialogue, select "Add-Ins" from the list on the left. Click Go at the bottom of the dialogue:

      'TransTools' menu item should appear in the main menu of Microsoft Excel.

  2. Macro Security

    If 'TransTools' menu (Excel 2003 or earlier) or 'TransTools Add-in' group (Excel 2007 or later) does not appear, your Macro Security settings are blocking the macros contained in the TransTools add-in. To change your Macro Security settings:

    • Excel 2007 or later: open Excel Options dialogue by clicking the large Microsoft Office icon in the top left corner (Excel 2007) or File tab (Excel 2010+) and then clicking Excel Options button or Options menu at the bottom.

      Select [Trust Center] from the list on the left and then click Trust Center Settings... to the right;

      Select 'Add-ins' from the list on the left and make sure that 'Require Application Add-ins to be signed by Trusted Publisher' and 'Disable all Application Add-ins (may impair functionality' are NOT checked.

    • Excel 2003 or earlier: go to Tools -> Macro -> Security... and click Trusted Publishers tab. At the bottom of the dialogue you will see a checkbox named 'Trust all installed add-ins and templates' . Enable/check this checkbox and click OK. Restart Microsoft Word. This should allow you to run TransTools commands.
