To be able to export and manipulate large amounts of data using Excel, an add-in needs to be installed. You will only need to do this once, after which you should always be able to see the Datastream tab when using the two together.
- You need to be logged in to Datastream first (with the username and password added in the appropriate place) before the Excel add-in will work correctly
- Open Excel and select File, then Options
- Select Add-Ins
- Next to 'Manage: Excel Add-Ins', select Go
- Select Browse
- Navigate to the D Drive, select Datastream Advance, then Advance Office.xlam. The Datastream add-in should now be available within Excel (you will not find the add-in on the C: drive because students are not permitted access to this drive on networked computers)
If you have previously installed the add-in in a library training session you may need to repeat this procedure the first time you use a bookable Datastream PC. Browse for the add-in within the D: drive to ensure the correct file-path.
