Follow the instructions below to download and install the latest version of Excel Data Workstation. Once installed, an Oxford Economics menu item will appear in Microsoft Excel. Click on this menu to show a ribbon holding a number of functions as shown in the figure following.



To begin, first ensure you meet all of the prerequisites listed above. Especially, check that all earlier versions (prior to version 3) of the Excel Data Workstation are removed or disabled. If not, please go into Add/Remove Programs find the Oxford Economics Excel Data Workstation, and uninstall.

Next, extract the .XLL files from your download, select and double click the version corresponding to your version of Excel (i.e. either 64- or 32-bit), and Excel will open with the Oxford Economics menu loaded. You will be prompted to load the plug-in automatically.
