Create an Excel add-in (VBA and VB6) | Free code

Here you can download an Excel workbook with VBA code that is ready to be saved as an Excel add-in.

An Excel add-in is a standalone application to Excel which can be activated in Excel and be used in all the workbooks that are opened in Excel. You can create stand-alone Excel add-ins to extend the capabilities of Excel by automating tasks or to provide new Excel functions (UDF).

An Excel add-in solely consists of VBA code and forms, which means that you in most cases need to create a custom menu and at least one form to enable users of your Excel add-in to access and use the functionality. If your Excel add-in only contains new or enhanced Excel functions (UDF) then there is no need for a custom menu.

This template with free code to create an Excel add-in contains a custom menu and a form which makes this template prepared to be saved as an Excel add-in. The menu is loaded into Excel when Excel is opened with code for the "workbook_open" event in "this workbook" that you can see when you view the VBA code.

A workbook that is prepared to be saved as an Excel add-in can be saved as an add-in easily by a click on "Save as" and a choice to save the file as an Excel add-in. An Excel add-in for Excel 2007 has the extension of ". xlam" and an Excel add-in for Excel 97-2003 has the extension of ". xla".

When you want to activate an add-in in Excel then it is easiest if you have stored the add-in in the user folder for AddIns or in the Microsoft Office folder for AddIns so that Excel will find the add-in automatically.
