Real Statistics Resource Pack for Excel 2007

The Real Statistics Resource Pack contains a variety of supplemental functions and data analysis tools not provided by Excel. These complement the standard Excel capabilities and make it easier for you to perform the statistical analyses described in the rest of this website.

We now explain how to download and install the Real Statistics Resource Pack for use with Excel 2007.

Download

If you accept the License Agreement, click here on Real Statistics Resource Pack to download the latest version of the resource pack that accompanies this website (Release 4.11). This software is compatible with Excel 2007. After downloading the software make sure that you install the software as described below.

Free Download Resource Pack

Downloading this resource pack means that you accept the License Agreement.

If you are using Excel 2010, Excel 2013 or Excel 2016, click here for instructions on how to download and install a compatible version of the Real Statistics Resource Pack.

If you are using Excel 2003 or a prior version of Excel, click here for instructions on how to download and install an .xla file containing the Real Statistics Resource Pack.

If you are using a Macintosh version of Excel, click here for instructions on how to download and install a beta version of the Real Statistics Resource Pack.

Installation

Before trying to install the Real Statistics Resource Pack make sure that Excel’s Solver capability is installed on your computer. Check this as follows:

  1. Open up a blank Excel spreadsheet
  2. Press Alt-TI (i.e. hold down the Alt key and press the T and I keys).
  3. On the dialog box that appears make sure that the Solver addin is checked. If not, check it and click on the OK button.
  4. If the Solver addin was not checked you need to close the Excel file before proceeding to the next step.

Once you have downloaded the Resource Pack and made sure that Solver is installed, you need to install the Real Statistics Real Pack using the following steps:

  1. Move the Resource Pack to where you want it located on your computer (see our recommendation below). Caution: once you install the resource pack at a particular location it will be more difficult to move it later.
  2. Open Excel, but don’t try to open the realstats-2011.xlam file that you downloaded earlier.
  3. Select Office Button > Excel Options > Add-Ins and click on the Go button at the bottom of the window (see Figure 1). Alternatively you can simple press Alt-TI (i.e. hold the Alt key down and simultaneously press T followed by I) and the dialog box shown in Figure 2 will appear.
    Add-in dialog box

    Figure 1 – Add-ins dialog box 1
  4. Check the Realstats option on the dialog box that appears (see Figure 2) and click the OK button.
  5. If this option doesn’t appear, click on Browse to find and choose the realstats 2007.xlam file. Then complete step 4 as described above.
Add-in selectionFigure 2 – Add-ins dialog box 2

While you can place the Real Statistics Resource Pack anywhere on your computer, we recommend that you put the file in the following folder:

C:\Microsoft Office\Office12\Library\Analysis

and then restart Excel and install the Real Statistics Resource Pack as described previously. An alternative, which may work better on some people’s computer, is to place the Real Statistics Resource Pack in the following folder:

C:\Users\user-name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns

where user-name is your user name in Microsoft Windows. Since some of these folders are hidden, you may find it convenient to enable showing hidden folders. E.g., in Window 7 you can do this by opening the Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options and then clicking the View tab. Now in the Advanced settings, click Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then click OK.

Installation of Upgrades

Once you have installed the Real Statistics Resource Pack as described above, to install a new version of the software you don’t need to repeat these steps. You only need to delete the previous version of the resource pack and put the new version of the software in the same location as the previous version.

Real Statistics Functions

Once you have installed the Real Statistics Resource Pack you can use the supplemental functions in the same way as you use the built-in worksheet functions supplied with Excel. These functions are described throughout the rest of this website. A complete list of these functions can be found in Real Statistics Supplemental Functions and Real Statistics Multivariate Functions.

Real Statistics Data Analysis Tools

You can access the Real Statistics data analysis tools in one of the following ways, as described in Accessing Real Statistics Supplemental Tools:

  • By pressing Ctrl-m or
  • By clicking on an icon on the Add-Ins ribbon or
  • By clicking on an icon on the Quick Access Toolbar or
  • Via the Macro dialog box

A dialog box will now appear which lists all the available Real Statistics data analysis tools.  You need to choose one of the data analysis tools from this list.

A dialog box will then appear as described in Real Statistics Supplemental Data Analysis Tools which enables you to specify your input data and choose from available options. You can also access Help to get more information about the selected data analysis tool.

A complete list of supplemental data analysis tools can be found in Real Statistics Supplemental Data Analysis Tools.

Uninstalling the Real Statistics Resource Pack

  1. Open Excel
  2. Press Alt-TI
  3. Uncheck the Realstats option on the dialog box that appears and click the OK button.

    Hi Charles,

    I have binary data. I need to run a Logistic regression. I am using MS excel 2007. I have followed all your steps. But I am getting an error:

    Compile error in hidden module: LogisticRegression

    Can you please help me on this.

    • Charles says:

      When you press Alt-TI do you see RealStats-2007 and Solver on the list of add-ins with check marks next to them?
      What do you see when you enter =VER() into any cell?

    Hi
    I tried to install in windows 2007 but failed. I tried to trouble shoot with every possible option given above but it is still not working. whatever I do, it says “Compile error in hidden module: Analysis”. Pls help!!!!

    • Charles says:

      What do you see when you enter the following formula in any cell? =VER()
      Charles

      • Bill says:

        I think somebody already answered this question. You need to find the downloaded file, right click on it to show its property, then you unblock it (I think you click on the unblock option).

    to correct the password problem requires installing the Real Stat addin in proper manner. Copy the downloaded file to /Microsoft Office/Office12/Library/Analysis , then restart excel. Then install in normal way.

    Georgios
    This solved my problem in Win 8.1 and Excel 2007.

    It took me a ggo hour to bump into it, though.

    Perhaps it should be put alongside the suggestion for the “Data Application Folder” (which ended up asking me for a password).

    I finally managed to install the 2003 addin….

    Thanks again for all this generous work you share with all of us, Charles.

    • Charles says:

      Georgios,
      Thanks for your email. I have just added Cyberpreneur’s suggested on the webpage that explains how to install the Real Statistics Resource Pack on a computer which runs Excel 2007.

  4. Aris says:

    Hi.

    I am using Excel 2007. After downloading realstats-2007.xlam, the RealStats option does not appear in the addins list and so I cannot proceed.

    • Charles says:

      Hi Aris,
      You need add RealStats 2007 to the list of addins as described on the referenced webpage. Prior to doing this you, need to make sure that Excel’s Solver appears on the list of addins (with a check mark next to it). All of this is explained in detailed on the referenced webpage.

  5. Matt Leitner says:

    Hi Charles,

    I recieved the following error message when downloading the plug-in and trying to use the Jenks formula:

    “Compile Error in Hidden Module: Cluster”

    When I type in VER, the following output is “4.6 Excel 2010/2013/2016.” I am using Excel 2010.

    Do you happen to know what might be causing this or a way to fix? Thanks in advance.

    • Charles says:

      Hi Matt,

      Are you able to use any of the other data analysis tools? If you are not able to use any of the data analysis tools, one possible issue may be as follows:

      Release 4.6 of the Real Statistics software uses Excel’s Solver capability, and so you need to make sure that Solver is installed. You check this by pressing Alt-TI (i.e. hold the Alt key down and press the T and I keys) and making sure that there is a check mark next to Solver.

    • Charles says:

      Thank you very much for this observation. Since don’t see this problem on my PC running Excel 2007, I haven’t been able to test this approach, but I will share your comment with others.

      Do you think this approach will also solve the problem that some Excel 2007 users are having of the following sort, which is a comment that I have recently received:

      I also got the same message “Compile Error in Hidden Module” what should I do? I am using the Chi-square test in Windows 7. This value: 4.4.3 Excel 2007 appears when I am typing =VER() in any cell.

      Charles

  7. SRecalcati says:

    Dear Charles,

    thank you for your work. I am encountering the same problem as Sailaja (and many other apparently). When I installed the add-in it said “Cannot find project or library”, I clicked OK and then asked for a password.

    When I type =VER() it says 4.4 Excel 2007.
    I am using Windows 7 on PC, with Excel 2007, in French.
    When I type =MEAN(8) I do get the result 8.
    Since I’m using a corporate computer I guess all service packs are updated.

    Thank you very much for your help,

    Sébastien

    • SRecalcati says:

      Update: I checked my version of Excel and apparently it doesn’t look like the service pack has been updated. I am still running the “release version”

      Microsoft Office Excel 2007 (12.0.4518.1014) MSO (12.0.4518.1014)

      Is the Add-in for Excel 2007 meant to work with the SP3 12.0.6611.1000?

      Maybe that’s the issue…

      • Charles says:

        Sébastien,
        I have heard from some other person who had this sort of problem that it might be linked to not having the latest service pack, but I don’t know for sure. I know that I am using the Real Statistics add-in with the Italian version of Excel 2007, and it works without any problems.
        Charles

    • Charles says:

      Sébastien,
      I don’t exactly know what is causing this problem. I believe the problem only occurs with Excel 2007 and only with certain non-English versions. Since you get the correct answer with =VER(), it sounds like you have installed the software correctly. It sounds like the functions in the add-in are working. Are you able to use any of the data analysis tools?
      Charles

  8. sailaja says:

    Dear Sir,
    I am unable to run this add-in in Excel 2007

    I run into the error “Cannot find project or library ” and then I am prompted for a password. when I give =ver() in Excel it prompted the reply as 4.4 excel 2007. what is the solution. kindly help.

    • Charles says:

      You should never be asked for a password; you don’t need one. The usual reason for getting this message is that the add-in was not properly installed, but this is probably not the cause since you are getting a value for =VER().

      If I am understanding you correctly, you have access to the Real Statistics functions, but not the Real Statistics data analysis tools (after pressing Ctrl-m).

      To help identify the problem, please answer the following questions:

      What version of Windows are you using?
      What language are you using (English, French, etc.)?
      What do you see when you enter the the following formula: =MEAN(8)
      Have you installed the latest service pack (I believe that it is SP3) for Office 2007?

      Charles

  9. J Iyer says:

    Dear Charles,
    Thanks for the wonderful add-in. I’ve used the add-in without problem in Excel 2013 and Excel 2003. But in another machine with Excel 2007 installed, I’m getting an ‘out of memory’ error, after which the add-in does not load. A
    Any help to make the add-in functional in Excel 2007 will be highly appreciated.
    Thanks and regards,
    Jitesh

    • Charles says:

      Dear Jitesh,
      I have not heard of an “out of memory” problem before with any of the versions of the Real Statistics Resource Pack. Have you simply tried restarting the computer? Are you sure that the software was installed properly?
      Charles

  10. Raghavan says:

    Hi

    I have Windows 10 installed on my laptop

    I am unable to run this add-in in Excel 2007

    I run into the error “Cannot find project or library ” and then I am prompted for a password

    Any suggestions ?

    Raghavan

    • Charles says:

      I am not yet using Windows 10, and so I have not tested the software with Windows 10. In any case, I would doubt that the problem is compatibility with Windows 10.

      Usually when someone receives a message that they need to supply a password, it means that the Real Statistics software has not been installed properly. The simplest way to find this out is to enter the formula =VER() in any cell in an Excel worksheet. The cell should then contain a value such as “4.3 Excel 2007”.

      If =VER() is working properly, then for some reason the Real Statistics software is not able to find some Excel capabilities that it needs. You may be able to fix this by making sure that you have installed all the latest Excel 2007 service packs.

  11. Firas says:

    Hi Charles,

    I am trying to install this package on Excel 2007 Windows 7 and I followed your instructions without trying to open the file. However, I am getting the following error message and the process fails:

    “Could not load some objects because they are not available on this machine”

    It seems that I am the first one who gets such an error message! Do you have any idea about the problem?

    • Charles says:

      Without seeing the situation on your computer, I am not in the position to figure out what is going wrong. It may have something to do with having the latest service pack installed for Office/Excel 2007.

    When I am trying for Anova single factor it is showing compile error in hidden module frm:anova1

    • Charles says:

      This problem has been identified by a few other people. In order to help you overcome the problem, please answer the following questions:

      1. When you enter the formula =VER() in any cell, what value results?
      2. Are you running Office or Office Professional (including Access and Outlook)?
      3. Which operating system are you using (Windows XP, 7, Vista, 8.1, etc.)?

  13. Chris Abele says:

    I’ve downloaded and installed the realstats pack 4.1.1 Excel 2007, however I am unable to use any of the functions.

    I’ve attempted to use both logistic regression and frequency table. In both cases, I received a visual basic error. (Compile error in hidden module.)

    I also received an error during the installation process, whereby I was asked for a Realstats password?

    • Charles says:

      Chris,

      If you received a message asking for a password, then you probably tried to open the document that you downloaded. You should not do this.

      Instead you should follow the installation instructions on the webpage where you downloaded the resource pack from, namely press Alt-TI and click on Browse in order to find out where you stored the file containing the resource pack. Once you have done this, you just need to check the RealStats choice.

      Once you have done this you should be able to enter the formula =VER() in any spreadsheet cell and see a value 4.1.1 Excel 2007.

          Are you able to use the =VER() function on any Excel worksheet? If so, what result do you get?

          If are not able to use the =VER() function then you probably haven’t installed the software as described on the referenced webpage.

        Further sir, When I am calculating chronbach alpha using excel (without real static software formula). I am following the procedure as given in the experimental sheet provided by you (having 11 values and alpha of .73 or so). My value for 60 items of 5 point scale with sample of 50 students is showing alpha = 0. but the split half (50-50) is giving a correlation of .65 or so. What is wrong with that???
        any workaround you can suggest.

            Sir,
            I could figure that out. It was a kind of typo error while making the formula according to your sheet.

            thanks anyway.

  18. Connor says:

    So I’m using excel 2007 and Windows 8.1, and I saved the xlam file in the AddIn folder as per your suggestion. Every time I try to activate the RealStats-2007 AddIn, Excel gives me an error and says it cannot access the file. It says there are many possible reasons, including

    “The file name or path does not exist”,
    “The file is being used by another program”, or
    “The workbook you are trying to save has the same name as a currently open workbook”.

    This error still occurs if I try to activate the AddIn and it’s saved in a different location on my computer. I’m confident the file path exists, and I really doubt any other program is using the file. Could you offer any insight?

    • Charles says:

      Conner,
      If by “activate” you mean open the RealStats-2007 file, you should expect to get an error message. You should never try to open this file. Instead you should open a blank Excel file and press Alt-TI (as described on the referenced webpage). Then click on the Browse button and search for the RealStats-2007 file. Press OK and when you return to the original dialog box make sure that RealStats-2007 is checked. Close the dialog box. Now you will have access to all the features in the RealStats-2007 file from any Excel file.
      Charles

      • Connor says:

        I’m sorry, I should’ve been more clear, I do not mean opening the actual file in Excel. I mean precisely the procedure you’re referring to, when I check the box and try to close the dialog, that is when the error message appears. I have not been able to get past this point despite troubleshooting all of the basic things I can think of (restarting Excel, re-downloading the file, restarting my computer, renaming the file, loading the file from somewhere else, etc.). Any help you could provide would be appreciated.

        • Charles says:

          Conner,
          I didn’t catch which dialog box you are referring to. Is this the dialog box that is used to specify which file is the add-in or is this the dialog box that lists all the Real Statistics data analysis tools?

    I am getting the message “compile error in hidden module: Analysis” when i try to run the test on my data using real statistic tool pack. This appears whenever I try to use any from the Realstat box list. I also enter =ver() and it gave me 3.7 Excel 2007. Please help me,thank you.

  20. Wara says:

    Sir, I’m using windows 8 and excel 2007. When I type =VER() it shows 3.6.2 .
    I already downloaded RealStat 2007, But when I follow Instalation procedure above, they asked me password.
    I clicked cancel, and when I tried to do T2 Hottelling test, it shows “Compile error in hidden modules”.
    How can I solve this?

    thankyou Sir

    • Charles says:

      Wara,
      Since you see 3.6.2 when you type =VER(), this means that the software has been installed. But then you say that you are being prompted for a password. This seems to indicate that you are trying to open the file containing the Real Statistics software. You should not do this.
      Simply open a new Excel workbook and use it is as normal. Just like the VER function, all the other Real Statistics functions and data analysis tools should be accessible.

  21. Han says:

    Charles,
    Thanks a lot for your effort. I have a little problem in the evalues().
    The function works fine in most matrices, but not the adjacent matrix, say in a 3×3,
    0 1 0
    1 0 1
    0 1 0
    it returns “#values!”. Am I missing something ??
    Pls help,
    Han

    • Charles says:

      Han,
      The algorithm that I use does not work if the original matrix is not invertible, which results in a zero eigenvalue.
      Charles

    • Charles says:

      Han,

      If you have a singular matrix A, like the one in your example, you can find the eigenvalues of A using the fact that c is an eigenvalue of A if and only if c + 1 is an eigenvalue of A + I where I is the identity matrix. For your example A is

      0 1 0
      1 0 1
      0 1 0

      Thus A + I is

      1 1 0
      1 1 1
      0 1 1

      If you use eVALUES(R1) where R1 contains A + I, you will get the eigenvalues 1, -.41421, 2.4.1421. Subtracting 1 from these values, gives us the eigenvalues of A, namely 0, -1.41421, 1.41421.

  26. Tototo says:

    Good day Sir.

    Probably, the OS of our PCs in school are also Windows XP. Earlier, I have tried using the add-in in a computer with Windows 7 OS, but still, same problem occurs. I certainly don’t know where the problem is but is it possible that the error occurs on the download itself? I mean, if I download the real-statistics resource pack, what kind of files should I get? When I download it, I only get an .xlam file. Is it the one and only thing that is in your resource pack or am I missing something? Tomorrow is Saturday but still… hahaha… I don’t know if I can survive. But anyway, thanks.

    • Charles says:

      Tototo,
      The software is completely contained in the .xlam file. Yesterday I released a new version of the software. Perhaps this version will work better.

      Totto, I have XP- Excel 2007 and RealStat 2007 doesn’t work (same problem like you). VER() is 3.0

  27. Tototo says:

    Good day.

    I am experiencing the same problem just like the previous downloaders. When I am trying to perform any statistical tool, this kind of “compiled error in hidden module:” followed by either “analysis” and “multivariate” is always appearing. I have downloaded the workbooks and I am pretty much excited on trying the MANOVA tool because I will be having a report about it this coming Saturday, that is why I am searching for an add-in for Excel that will help me best on this particular lesson (though I am not that knowledgeable on MANOVA yet because self-studying Statistics is a kind of hell after all).

    Can you help me? Thank you in advance. 🙂

    PS
    I am using MS Excel 2007 and the OS of the pc I am currently using is Windows XP. When I try typing =ver(), 3.6 appears.

      Another one, after completing step 4 on the installation process, this message appeared, “Can’t find project or library.”

    • Charles says:

      Tototo,

      Since the =VER() functions is working, it sounds like you are able to use the Real Statistics functions, but there are problems with data analysis tools. Are you able to use any of the Real Statistics data analysis tools? In particular do you see an error message when you choose any of the following data analysis tools:

      – Linear Regression
      – Chi-square
      – Logistic Regression
      – Analysis of Variance

      I have never tested the version of the Real Statistics Resource Pack that you are using with Windows XP. The only versions that have been tested with XP are the versions for Excel 2002 and 2003. You might want to down the Excel 2003 version of the software and see whether that works. Since Microsoft has discontinued support for XP I am reluctant to spend too much time in supporting this version of Windows.

        Sir,

        I forget what kind of OS is installed in our school. Since, I am just attempting to use your add-in, maybe it will work in school. But the problem is I cannot visit my school unless it is Saturday so it is too troublesome for me.

        I have tried all the tools and the same message appears again. Maybe it is because of XP. Anyway, even if I cannot use this add-in, I will still recommend it to my professor and classmates. Your tutorial is very easy to follow and to understand (but it still hard for me ’cause I am self-studying and the add-in is not working). Much more to that, your workbook is very useful. In spite of the error in using the program, I can still use the data example and compare the results to other software.

        Thank you very much. 🙂

        • Charles says:

          Tototo,
          Please let me know whether it works at your school. If it does this points to a likely XP problem, but if it doesn’t work at your school, then the problem probably lies elsewhere and we can probably figure out how to resolve the problem.

    dear professor
    i downloaded your software.
    whenever i try to perform chisquare test, an error message is displayed showing that “compile error in hidden module:analysis”
    please help me

    • Charles says:

      I don’t fully understand why you are receiving this message, but I have a couple of theories. I am using the Excel 2007 version on my computer without problem. I plan to introduce a new release of the software this week and I plan to make a few changes which I hope will address this issue. Are you seeing this problem with any of the other data analysis tools?

    hello sir………….m getting an option for password…………what is dat????????//

    • Charles says:

      You don’t need to supply a password.

      The usual reason for this message is that although the Real Statistics Resource Pack was downloaded, it was not installed properly. Please make sure that you follow the instructions in the referenced webpage to enable Excel to recognize the resource pack as an “add in”. You should see the release number of the resource pack when you enter the formula =VER() in any cell of a worksheet. If not, this is likely to be the problem.

    • Charles says:

      Which data analysis tool are you using? What version of Windows are you using?

  31. Putri says:

    Hi, thank you so much for providing this and such a simple way to install it.

    However I have a question. I installed this to change ordinal data into interval data. I notice that there is no Successive Interval function in this add-in. Is the Successive Interval not included or does it go by other name? Thank you for your help.

    • Charles says:

      Putri,
      Sorry, but I don’t knwo what the successive interval function is. Can you please define it for me and then I can determine whether it is included under a different name?

  32. Joanna says:

    Hi Charles,

    I ran into the same problem like Mansi but with Excel 2007 and Windows 7 when I tried to use the QQ Plot. I tried randomly some other tools and I get the same error. What I remembered was that the only way I could install it was to save the package in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office12\Library\Analysis folder (the Analysis folder has a few other add-ons). When I look at the file properties I get a Security warning that the file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer. I “unblock” it but it seems it reverses to the blocked status and I have a feeling this is why we get the error (it is actually not allowed to run). Any idea how to unblock it permanently. When I tried to install it under the user folder as you wrote into your instructions in asked me for the ‘password’. Thank you for your help.

    • Charles says:

      Joanna,

      Are you able to use any of the functions? E.g. do you get the release number when you enter =VER() in any cell?

      I ask to make sure that the software has been recognized as an add-in by Excel. If you can’t use any of the functions or tools, then the installation process was not completed properly or for some reason was not recognized by Excel. If you can use some functions but not any of the tools, then the problem is different.

  33. Paul says:

    Hi,
    Great software…..thanks (must have taken a lot of work putting it together!). I am teaching myself stats for stylometric analysis (authorship attribution etc) using PCA and LDA…

    Only one comment……..I see you have a new release……but no way of checking what release I have got? (so I have downloaded and installed again just in case)……could you put the release version somewhere on the application (maybe in the help section…..with a link to your fantastic website?)

    Anyway,
    Thanks

    • Charles says:

      Paul,
      Glad to see that you appreciate the software. To find the release number, just enter the formula =VER() in any cell in an Excel spreadsheet and the cell will show the current release number.
      Charles

  34. Robin says:

    Hi Charles,
    Thanks for RealStat. But I encountered a problem regarding LogitCoeff. I did not find this function even after following all the Installation processes. How can I find it?

    • Charles says:

      Robin,

      This is quite strange. I have received spreadsheets from other people where they clearly have been able to use the LogitCoeff function. I can only think of the following reasons why you might have this problem:

      1. You are using a very old version of the software. If this is the case, just install the latest version of the software (Release 2.17.1)
      2. You haven’t installed the software properly and in fact are not able to use any of the functions in the Real Statistics Resource Pack. To check this simply type =VER() in any cell. You should see the release number of the Real Statistics software (if not then there was a problem with installation).
      3. You are looking for this function in the list of data analysis tools (after pressing Ctrl-m). This is a function and should be entered in a cell just like any other Excel function.
      4. You actually have access to the function, but Excel 2007 doesn’t give such feedback when you type in the function name in a cell (whereas newer versions of Excel do).

      I’m not saying that you have any of these problems, but they are the only ones I can think of at the moment. This is not a problem that has been reported to me before.

      Charles

      • Robin says:

        Dear,

        Please make me way out. I’m in damn problem. I just cannot find it. I am really disappointed. What should I do?

        • Charles says:

          Robin,
          Have you tried using the Logistic Regression data analysis tool? Press Ctrl-m and choose Logistic Regression. This tool automatically uses the LogitCoeff function.

  35. Mansi says:

    Hi Charles,

    Yes, the dialogue box lists all the data analysis tools (descriptive analysis, QQ plot etc).
    Yes I am using Excel 2007 & Windows 8.
    When I type =VER() in any cell, it returns value 2.15

    • Charles says:

      Hi Mansi,
      I really can’t think of what could cause you to get the same message when you click on any of the data analysis tools. If you got the error message when you select some tools but not others, then it would be easier to figure out what has gone wrong. Since I am not seeing this problem myself nor have heard anyone else having this problem, it seems likely that it is caused by an interaction between Excel 2007 and Windows 8, a combination which I suspect few people are using. It would be good to see if you have the same problem when using the Real Statistics Resource Pack with Excel 2010 or Excel 2013, or when using Excel 2007 with Windows 7.
      Charles

  36. Mansi says:

    Hi Charles,

    Thanks for releasing the updated version. But I am still getting the same message whenever I try to run any function. The message is “Compile error in hidden module: Analysis”.

    I can see the list of functions available in the dialogue box, but when I apply the function, I get this message.

    I am not able to figure out the error.

    • Charles says:

      Hi Mansi,

      I am sorry to hear that you are getting these sorts of error messages. Let me ask you a few questions so that I can discern a little better what is happening.

      You refer to a dialogue box. Is this the dialogue box which lists all the data analysis tools (Descriptive Statistics, etc.)? Are you using Excel 2007? When you type =VER() into any cell in an Excel worksheet, what happens?

      Charles

  37. Mansi says:

    Sure.. Thanks!

  38. Mansi says:

    Hi Charles,

    For all the functions it is giving the same message. This error came when I tried to use Real Statistics Functions. Even when pressing for help, in the dialogue box of Real statistic Function, complie error message came. I am using Excel 2007, Windows 8. Please guide me to rectify this error.

    • Charles says:

      Hi Mansi,
      I have not received any emails or comments from anyone else with the same problem, but I doubt that too many people are using Excel 2007 with Windows 8 (although I could be wrong). I expect to issue a new release of the Real Statistics Resource Pack (Rel 15.0) tomorrow or Wednesday. I suggest that you install it and see if the problem goes away.
      Charles

  39. Mansi says:

    Hi,
    I am getting the message “complie error in hidden module” when i try to run the test on my data using real statistic tool pack. Please help to rectify it

    • Charles says:

      Hi Mansi,
      Sorry for this. Which function or data analysis tool did you try to use when you received this message? Were you able to use any other Real Statistics functions or data tools, or did you get this message when you tried to do anything?

      • ira says:

        Me too. I got that message too. Im using excel 2007 windows 7

        • Charles says:

          Ira,
          To help identify the problem, please answer the following question: (1) Which data analysis tool are you using? (2) What version of Windows are you using? (3) What value to you see when you enter =VER() in any cell?
          Charles

          • Justina Anene says:

            Hi Charles,
            I followed all the instruction to install Real Statistics Resource P, after instullation, when i tried to process the data it read: output overides the existing data and i clicked ok. After processing it read: Compile error in hidden module: Analysis.
            Please help me because i don’t know what else to do. Thanks

          • Charles says:

            The message “output overrides the existing data” means that you already had some data in the location where the output was to be written. Generally you should respond Cancel instead of OK to this message. Try changing the Output Range *or click the New button so that the output is written to a new webpage.
            Charles

      • Priscilla says:

        I also got the same message “Compile Error in Hidden Module” what should I do? I am using the Chi-square test in Windows 7. This value: 4.4.3 Excel 2007 appears when I am typing =VER() in any cell.

        Thanks a lot!

        • Charles says:

          Priscilla,

          I got the following comment from Cyberpreneur, regarding another problem that others have had when running Excel 2007. Perhaps this will be useful in solving the problem that you are having. Please let me know whether it works for you.

          “to correct the password problem requires installing the Real Stat addin in proper manner. Copy the downloaded file to /Microsoft Office/Office12/Library/Analysis , then restart excel. Then install in normal way.”

          Charles

  40. Carlos Mendoza says:

    Thanks a lot! The add-in looks great. Wow, multivariate statistics without SAS,SPSS,Minitab, …
    Thanks again.

  41. Caro says:

    Hi,

    To install realstats, they ask me for a password, where can I find it? Thank you.

    Caro

    • Charles says:

      Hi Caro,
      You don’t need the password to install the software. To install the program you need to follow the Installation instructions on the referenced page (e.g. by pressing Alt-TI, etc.). You should only be prompted for a password if you try to open the software file, but you don’t need to open the file to install and use the software.
      Charles

      • sarah says:

        i did not try to install the program. after downloading i simply went to excel option, addins and added . but after clicking okay they showed me an error and asked for a password.

        • Charles says:

          Sarah,
          You should never need to supply a password. The usual reason for this problem is that thebsoftware has been downloaded but not installed. In any case, to help you isolate the problem, please answer the following two questions:
          1. What value do you get when you enter the formula =VER()
          2. What version of Windows or Mac are you using?
          Charles

          • Deltaexplorer says:

            Just click cancel on the small windows that prompts for the password. The add-in is found in the Add-ins menu next to the View menu.
