We have an Excel Addin, developed by someone who left a long time ago that runs fine in Excel 2010 and before, but I can't get it working in Excel 2013. Although it does work in Excel 2013 on one machine which is 32bit.

We're running 32Bit versions of Office 2013.

The installer puts the XLA in c:\programs 86\etc\etc

When I add it, it adds fine, however when we try and use it Excel compains that

"Cannot run the macro  'nameoftheaddin.xla!!InsertFormula'. The Macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled"

I have been through all the settings in the trust centre but that doesn't make any difference.

Any pointers would be great.

Cheers

Ed

Hi,

...Although it does work in Excel 2013 on one machine which is 32bit.

We're running 32Bit versions of Office 2013.

Just to confirm:

Are all your PCs using 32-bit versions of MS-Office 2013 installed in a 32-bit version of MS-Windows?

Also,...

"Cannot run the macro  'nameoftheaddin.xla!!InsertFormula'. The Macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled"

Are there really two exclamation points in the error message (...xls!!InsertFormula...) ?

Does the PC where the Add-in is functioning correctly have fewer Add-ins loaded concurrently than the other environments?

Is there the possibility that "InsertFormula" is already defined in the environments where the Add-in cannot run?

Can you provide (attach) the Add-in to this thread, or perhaps a cut-down version of the function you are trying to call that does not perform any statements other than returning to the calling process?

In fact, have you tried this in your own environments?  Reducing the "InsertFormula" function to the most basic number of statements, or renaming it (& changing the references where the function is called from) to see if there is an issue with a duplication of function names?

BFN,

fp.
