Learn how to install an add-in for Access. Add-ins can save time, and make your code more accessible. Where does the add-in go?

Do you want to create an add-in? What must it contain? Learn about the USysRegInfo table and what needs to be in it.

The add-ins demonstrated here can be downloaded (free) from:

Tools > Add-in > Document SQL, RecordSource, RowSource
http://msaccessgurus.com/tool/Addin_DocumentSql.htm

Tools > Add-in > Workspace Save and Restore
http://msaccessgurus.com/tool/Addin_Workspace.htm

The add-ins are just ACCDB files that have been renamed to have an ACCDA extension.

Video Steps

1. To install an add-in, run Access as Administrator

2. Open a database

3. Drop down the list under the Add-ins icon on the DATABASE TOOLS ribbon tab

4. Choose the Add-in Manager

5. Choose Add New...

6. Browse to the ACCDA file and click Open

7. Close the Add-in Manager
