Add a Description to an Add-in

Under the Tools>Add-ins menu, there is a box for a description. To add a description to your .xla add-in, modify the file properties. First, locate the file in Windows Explorer, right-click on it and select properties.


In the Properties dialog, select the Summary tab. If you don’t see a Summary tab, it may be that the file is in use. Close Excel, and thus the add-in, and repeat this step.


Put your description in the Comments box and click OK. Now, the description will display in Excel.
