Where to place Add-Ins????

Post by Jeff » Thu, 21 Sep 2006 21:40:12


C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\ADDINS

C:\WINDOWS\addins

I have been trying to get a *.mda "Add-In" installed. I have
placed it in the above directories but it still does not show in the
"Add-In Manager" . Can someone please tell me how to accomplish
this?

Thank you

You can always use the Add New button on the Add-in Manager form to browse for the location of your
MDA file. After doing this, Access will place a copy of that MDA file in the following directory:

C:\Documents and Settings\<your user name>\Application Data\Microsoft\AddIns

(that will vary a bit depending upon operating system)

If you start out by placing the file in that directory, it will then show up on the Add-in Manager
form.

Thanks Jeff, for some reason I passed over the add-in manager on the
regular tools menu and was going to it in the visual basic editor.
There the add-in manager does not have an add-new button. I got it now
and appreciate your help. BTW your website is a great reference . .
what a JUNKIE!
