Excel Add-Ins

As powerful as Excel is in crunching your numbers, there are limits to what the spreadsheet application can do -- that's why add-ins exist. Add-ins (the downloadable ones that don't come pre-installed) are small software patches that enhance your Excel functionalities with additional commands and features. 

While Microsoft offers various add-ins, anyone with basic coding skills can create and share Excel add-ins. This database offers an overview of the downloads on offer. Far from exhaustive, this should be regarded as a work-in-constant-progress, with regular updates. If you want to submit more Excel add-ins to be included in this database you can use this form. Any other questions or suggestions you can send to feedback@silk.co.
