Unable to Install Excel Connector in Excel 2007.

Hi there,


I have installed SForce_Office_Toolkit from -


Now,I try to follow these steps -


  1. Launch Excel 2007
  2. Click on Add-ins
  3. And now, I am unable to locate this file or Add in for Toolkit - I cannot see this file - sforce_connect.xla

I have tried several times and cannot locate this file anywhere, even though I have installed it. What am I missing.?


I have also installed this ZIP file - and I see it under C:\ 



the installation is quite complex?



please help


Be suer never to open the XLA file or it gets corrupted. 


The install is fairly easy. Save the XLA file locally (I save it in my documents folder). Make sure you have first installed the office toolkit v4.


Open Excel,

Click the office ORB,

Click on "Excel Options"

Click "Add-Ins"

Ensure you have selectred "Excel Add-Ins" on the Manage dropdown

Click "Go"

Click the "Browse" button

Navigate to the XLA location and double click.


You should now have it installed. It will not work without the Toolkit being installed first. IF you already installed it and it was corrupted you need to purge it out the excel addins.
