Insert Office Add-ins into Excel Online

Maybe you're creating an Excel worksheet to help track your mortgage or budget and want more help by having an Office add-in right in your worksheet? If you do, here's how you insert an add-in.

Important: New name for apps for Office - Office Add-ins. We are currently updating our products, documentation, samples, and other resources to reflect the platform name change from "apps for Office and SharePoint" to "Office and SharePoint Add-ins". We made this change to better distinguish the extension platform from Office apps (applications). While these changes are taking place, the dialogs and messages you see in your application might be different than what you see in this article.

  1. Click Insert > My Add-ins.

    My Apps button

  2. In the Office Add-ins box, click Store.

    Office Add-ins dialog with Store button highlighted

  3. Pick the add-in you want, or search for one in the search box. When you find an add-in you want, click it.

  4. Review the privacy information, and then click Trust it.

    If you’d rather browse the whole store, click All or See more.

  5. Click an add-in to read more about it, and then click Add or Buy. If you’re prompted to sign in, type the email address and password you use to sign in to Office programs. Review the privacy information, and then click Continue (for free add-ins), or confirm billing information and complete your purchase.
