Excel for Windows Add-In Conversion

Hi all,
I am trying to use an Add-in called Stats Plus.  It was originally developed for Office 2000 (Windows).  When I try to install it I get the following error:  
Compile error in hidden module:  Functions

I underdstand that it may be impossible, but it seems like it's feasible to run the add-in on my Office X (Mac 10.2) system.  Any help in getting this working would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

If you need more detail I woul dbe more than happy to provide it.

One of the selling points of VBA macros is that they are cross-platform. Except for a very few commands, what works on the Mac should work on a PC (and vice-versa).

Can you open the .xla to look at the code? Option + F11 should open up the Project Explorer menu. From there you should be able to see the .xla file. Double click it and see if you can look at the code.

For debugging purposes, if you can capture the code, try pasting it in your workbook (thereby eliminating the need for the .xla add-in). The hope is that Microsoft's syntax checker and error messages will flag the problem.

I attempted to look at the code but it is password protected. I wouldn't suppose anyone knows of a cracker for that sort of thing.  I will attempt to call the manfaturer and see if they would be willing to give me the password.

I'll let you know what I come up with.

Thank you.

I found cracker software pretty quickly using Google--but I think going through the manufacturer is the better course of action.  They really ought to support the macro for Macs.

When I contacted the manufacturer (for the second time) the tech told me that there was an unsupported version that should work for Mac.  After downloading it from their FTP Site it works with some quirks but gets the job done.  Wish they would have told me about this the first time I called as it would have saved me some points.

Oh well, all's well that ends well.

Thank you for your help.
