Some of you have reported that Real Statistics disappears from the Add-ins ribbon. What follows is a potential way to eliminate the problem thanks to some research done by Jeff.
First of all, this problem is likely due to a security enhancement that Microsoft recently made to Excel which impacts add-ins. The following steps should be useful in eliminating this problem.
- If Excel is running, close it
- Find the file with the Real Statistics add-in. Right click on the file and click on the Properties option from the menu that appears.
- Towards the bottom of the General tab of the Properties window you will see the security message “This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer”. Next to this message is the Unblock check box. Make sure this is checked and press the OK button.
- Start Excel
If you don’t see the security message in step 3 above, then probably the cause of the problem is different.
If you are having this problem, please let me know whether or not this approach solves the problem for you.
Again, thanks to Jeff for finding the solution.
