Manually Enabling / Disabling the Jet Excel add-in


Beginner

Overview

Excel needs to be configured to recognize the Jet add-in.  Since Excel stores add-in configuration on a user-by-user basis, if multiple users use the same workstation or server, this step must be done for each user.

If you launch Excel with the Jet add-in by double-clicking the "Jet Reports" icon on your desktop...

...this automatically ensures that the Jet add-in is enabled before Excel is started.

Otherwise, there are a two ways to enable the Jet add-in.

  • If you are a user with administrative privileges, you can use the Jet Activation Wizard. This wizard runs automatically after you install Jet or it can be run from the start menu.
  • You can also use Excel to enable the Jet add-in manually

Manually Enabling the Jet Excel add-in

  1. Open Excel and go to the Excel add-ins

    • Excel 2010 and higher - File/Options/Add-Ins/Go
    • Excel 2007 - Office Button/Excel Options/Add-Ins/Go

  2. Click the Browse... button

    If you have other add-ins enabled in Excel, it may be necessary to temporarily disable them prior to enabling the Jet add-in.
  3. Navigate to the Jet Reports folder (default: C:\Program Files (x86)\JetReports)
