Invest for Excel is installed under “DataPartner” in your Start menu. You’ll need to run Invest for Excel by going to Start > DataPartner > Invest for Excel
When installing Invest for Excel, setup gives an error about write permissions
You have to log in as a system administrator in order to install Invest for Excel® for all users.
If you don’t have administrator rights for the computer, you can normally still install Invest for Excel to a directory under My Documents.
Note: Invest for Excel® uses macros so you will need to allow macros to run by selecting “Enable Macros” when you start the program.
Invest for Excel macros are digitally signed by DataPartner so if you accept DataPartner as a trusted publisher (select “Always trust macros from this publisher”), the enable macros screen will not be shown at startup.
If you have Microsoft Excel 2003 and the macro security level “Very high” is selected, the program will not start. You will need to set the macro security level to “High” or “Medium” (Microsoft Excel menu “Tools-Macro-Security”).
“Medium” Macro security setting is recommended for the use of Invest for Excel. A security level of “Low” is not recommended.
Invest for Excel® is constantly developed based on user feedback and to reflect changes in legislation and reporting standards. The agreement is valid one year at a time, unless it is withdrawn at least one month before the end of the agreement period.
