PATools XL Toolbox

The Installation Workbook on the downloads page simply downloads 4 files from our site and puts one of them into the Excel startup folder so it always opens with Excel, and the remaining files into a subfolder called PAToolsData.

If this fails to download then you can grab a zip file below and unzip the files manually.

We recommend you unzip into the Excel start folder, which is normally to be found in a location such as

  • C:\Users\{user name}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Excel\XLStart
  • C:\Users\{user name}\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Excel\XLStart
  • C:\Documents and Settings\{user name}\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLStart

Download this zip file for Excel 2007 or later

Download this zip file for Excel 2003 or earlier

Once unzipped, simply open the file called PATXT.xlam (or PATXT.xla in Excel 2003 and earlier). The remaining files should be in a subfolder called PAToolsData.
