  3. Install and set up

In series 4 of the Excel Add-in, learn how to prepare, configure, and install the Add-in.

The Excel Add-in is only available for Windows devices. Before you install the Excel Add-in, ensure that your device meets all  prerequisites.

If your device meets the prerequisites, download the latest version of the Excel Add-in from the Downloads page.

There are two installation methods available. A standard installation is suitable if each user installs the add-in on their own devices. Installation via the command prompt offers more configuration options for administrators. The MSI file for multiple users installs the add-in for all users on the machine that have Excel installed.

If you need access via a proxy server for your usage of the Excel Add-in, set up proxy support after you have installed the add-in.

Lastly, ensure that the Excel Add-in is enabled so that it displays within Excel.

Note: Some virus detection software may flag the Excel Add-in installer as containing malicious code when they detect the Add-in connects to a remote site. This is a false positive. The Excel Add-in contains code which allows it to connect to the Anaplan website and then execute server-side scripts. 


We may update our documentation occasionally, but will only do so in a way that does not negatively affect the features and functionality of the Anaplan service.
