no grey

To paraphrase Johnny Nash, "I can see clearly now the grey is gone."  The grey in question being the mysterious greyed out ribbon even when a workbook is open in Excel.

What's new on the menu?  Quite a bit actually, with the new Excel ribbon based interface for a start.

The old menu driven interface for the addin has been replaced with the user friendly Office style ribbon interface.


The new ribbon interface for Ian's Excel Addin

This function is used to convert a numerical value into its equivalent textual representation, e.g. 123 becomes One Hundred and Twenty Three.  Used in the format of =textamount(value[,"MajorCurrency"][,"MinorCurrency"]) where:

Items under the Special Characters menu are used to insert special characters.

Items under the Numeric Functions menu are used to manipulate values or formulae.

Items under the Text Functions menu are used to manipulate text.

March 2015 update:  The menu style interface has been superseded by the Office style ribbon interface.  See this article for more information.

While earlier versions of Microsoft Excel allowed a developer to add their own menu to the menu bar relatively easily, the newer versions have thrown a bit of a spanner in the works when it comes to creating custom menus.  It does not surprise me then that users often ask "where do I find Ian's Excel Addin after I have installed it?  Fortunately, the answer to that is relatively simple.

This is the online user manual for Ian's Excel Addin.  This will be a work in progress for the foreseeable future.
