The Anaplan Excel Add-in is an add-in for Microsoft Excel that enables you to display data from Anaplan modules in Excel worksheets.

Once you've created a connection between an Excel worksheet and an Anaplan module, you can view, edit, pivot, and filter the data in Excel, and perform calculations using Excel formula.

Note: The Excel Add-in creates a one-way connection between Anaplan and Excel. You can view and edit Anaplan data in Excel, but you can't push those changes back to Anaplan to update the source module.

If the update is optional, the notification states that updates are available. You can then click Yes, No, or Cancel. To:
