Hello,

I have a very nasty problem with Excel.

Excel adds a path to the function, i.e.:
='C:\Users\Me\Documents\water97_v13.xla'!tSatW(10)
But than this gives a #NAME? error.

When I manually remove the path, i.e.:
=tSatW(10)

Than the function works fine. I could manually remove all the paths, however when I reopen the Excel file it automatically appends the path again.

I'm using Microsoft Office Proffesional Plus 2016.

I read that you can uninstall and reinstall the add in. However when I click: File >>> Options >>> Add-ins >>> GO then the Add-ins dialog box opens, but I cannot uninstall the add-in.

I can also click: File >>> Edit Links to Files, than I get the Edit Links dialog box. I tried all the buttons here. Change source, Update Values, Check status, nothing works. When I click the: Open Source button I get the error message:
Sorry, Excel can't open two workbooks with the same name at the same time.

Please help.
