Removing Add Ins

You may wish to remove an add-in from the list of available add-ins in the Add-In dialog box. There is no effective way to do this within Excel. Follow these steps:

1. Close all running instances of Excel.

2. Use Windows Explorer to locate the file. The file may be located in C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Application Data\Microsoft\AddIns\.

3. In Windows Explorer, rename the file or move it to a different folder.

4. Open Excel. You get a note warning you that the add-in could not be found. Click OK to dismiss this box.

5. Select Add-Ins from the Tools menu. In the Add-Ins dialog box, uncheck the name of the add-in you want to remove. Excel notifies you that the file cannot be found and asks whether you want to remove it from the list. Choose Yes.
