Deleting an Add-In

I removed an Add-In file from my computer. When I opened Excel, I received a message that the Add-In could not be found. That's fine. I went into Tools - Add-Ins and clicked on the Add-In name. Another message that it couldn't be found. It also asked if I wanted to delete it. I clicked on Yes. I exited Excel and then opened it again. Surprise... Excel was still looking for the Add-In and it was still listed in the Add-Ins list. How can I permanently delete it?

Thanks

Re: Deleting an Add-In

You seem to have done the right things.

Did you click Yes to 'delete from list' in the Dialog Box that came up when you opened Excel?

Re: Deleting an Add-In

What was the add-in? Do you have formulas in you workbook that utilize that add-in?

Re: Deleting an Add-In

Mark - You are right. In the VB Editor the Add-In is listed as Inter(BookInter.xla) with a form and a module associated with it. I can delete both but not the main heading. How can I remove it from the VBE? [/img]

Skippy, I'll have to defer to someone who knows more about VB. I thought you were referring to an Excel add-in.

Re: Deleting an Add-In

Well Mark, you're still correct. The xla is still open. Skippy, are you sure you killed every copy of the xla that exists in your hard drive ?

Re: Deleting an Add-In

For clarification to others who are viewing this post, I am referring to an Excel Add-In. This one has code associated with it in the VB Editor. I need to delete it from the project listing as well as from the Add-In list. The latter is no problem, but I can't see how to do the former. Any suggestions?

How can it appear in the VBE if Excel can't find it? It must be open to appear in the VBE.

Close Excel, search the harddrive for the filename of the Addin. Rename or delete every copy that you find. Try opening Excel again.
