SolverTable files and installation instructions

You need to have Solver installed before attempting to load SolverTable. They are separate programs.

To download the executable (zip) file for the SolverTable:
After clicking OK (when it says something about not being licensed for redistribution), choose a directory (make sure that the directory name, as well as the entire path to that directory, consists of names with no spaces, hyphens or underscores) and click OK. Then doubleclick on the "SolverTable" application (.exe file) in that directory.

Then, in Excel, load the add-in with the Tools|Add-ins menu item. If this is the first time you are loading SolverTable, you'll need to click on the Browse button to find the SolverTable.xla file (the directory you just placed it in). Otherwise, there should be a SolverTable item in the list of available add-ins. Just check its box, and click on OK. SolverTable is no different from any other Excel add-in; they are all loaded this way. You will know that SolverTable is loaded when you see a SolverTable menu item under Excel's Data menu.

If any errors are encountered, try uninstalling SolverTable (go to Tools|Add-Ins and un-check the SolverTable option, then click OK). Return to Tools|Add-Ins and try installing SolverTable again.

The file "SolverTable.html" has instructions on how to use SolverTable. This will also be explained in class.
