We use  windows 7 and  and office 2010 and  i have installed a plugin which is used to connect to the database server  from excel and word to access files.

The addin is sucessfully installed and when i open  excel iam able to see the  the Add-ins in the menu and when i click  addin it connects to a link to our database server files.

But when i open word i cant see Add-ins  option on the menu.

Any ideas how to get the  Add-inn in the menu will be greatful.

    Click somewhere on the ribbon or the Quick Access Toolbar and choose Customize Ribbon. In the right-hand list in the Customize dialog, you should see the Add-Ins tab listed. If it's there but unchecked, check it.

    It is checked already on the word and excel , but the Add-ins  appear only in the excel , but not the word.
