Adding NumXL to Excel Trusted Locations


How do I add the NumXL installation folder to Excel's Trusted Locations?


Adding the NumXL installation folder to the list of Trusted Locations can be done by following the steps below:

  1. Go to the “File” Tab, then click on “Options”.
    Select the “Options” tab from Excel's “file” menu.
