I have a vba macro that I am trying to package for distribution.  I tried to save it as an addin, but after checking the addin in options, no addin tab shows up in Excel.  I need to be able to distribute this to workers in my office whom will not be very technically inclined.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

1) to create an addin.
Save the file under a new name. So that you can still edit it.

Then save the file as an addin.

Email the addin to them.

They will then need to save the file to their addin directory from the email.

Then they click Tools|Addins|Browse

Find your addin and click OK. The macros will then always be available to them until they remove the addin.

I did all of that, but it is not showing up in the ribbon, or anywhere, I don't know how to access the addin.
