How to install Calc Buddy?

  • Unzip the downloaded file
  • Copy the Calc_Buddy.xlam file to a location which is easy to find and you always have access to.
  • As the file was downloaded from the internet, Windows may add a security block to the file, so you will need to change that setting first.
    • Right click on the file, select Properties.
    • From the Properties menu, ensure the Unblock box is ticked (if there is not an Unblock box, ignore this step), then Click OK.
