Temporarily Stop An Add-In Running

Follow the steps above to the point of:

"Find and select your add-in file and ensure the checkbox is ticked"

And change the checkbox to unselected (empty).

The add-in disappears from the ribbon menu and will no longer be loaded when Excel is started.

    The folder and file name of the currently running Smart Excel User Add-In can be found in
    the Configuration Window - see below.
     

  3. Delete the Add-In file (.xlam)
     

  4. Open Excel (Excel may display a message that it did not find the Add-In)
     

  5. Follow the steps above to the point of:
    "Find and select your add-in file and ensure the checkbox is ticked"
