Secrets of the Office Masters: Managing Add-Ins

Excel includes a variety of special-purpose add-ins that extend basic worksheet functionality with custom functions, wizards, dialog boxes, and other tools. By default, every Excel add-in is configured to be installed on first use. That means you'll have to hunt down the main Office CD each time you use an add-in for the first time—an annoying distraction, especially if you're in the middle of a deadline and the CD isn't close at hand.

To avoid this hassle, we strongly recommend that you go through the list of add-ins now and install the ones you even think you might use in the future. Open Control Panel's Add/Remove Programs option, double-click the Microsoft Office 2000 entry, and launch the Windows Installer in maintenance mode. Go through the list of add-ins under the Excel group and change their status from Installed on First Use to Run from My Computer.
