Upgrade the Excel Add-in to benefit from the new features in the latest version. 

The add-in is backwards compatible with versions 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3. The add-in is not backwards compatible with Series 3 of the Excel Add-in. If you're using Series 3, make a copy of your workbook.

If you're using Series 3, you'll need to uninstall it before you can install Series 4. Follow the standard software uninstallation processes. Depending on your corporate software policy, this may need to be done by your IT department. 

Check for updates

The Excel Add-in Updater displays when you open Excel if you're not using the latest version of the add-in. You can:

  • Select Install now to download and install the update. 
  • Select Remind me later

If you've previously selected Remind me later, you can update the add-in from the Anaplan ribbon:

  1. On the Anaplan tab, select What's New > Check for Updates....
