Information/History of the Program  

Here are some common questions we have received from PlusTab users:

1. Does it work on Macs?

Sorry, no it does not.

You need to use bootcamp and Windows XP/Vista/7 and Excel 2010, 2007 or 2003 for Windows.

2. Does it work on Excel 2016/2019/365?

No, sorry. You should use Excel 2010 though it works on 2003, 2007. You also MUST use Windows 7. It does not work in Windows 8, 10, 11.

3. Can I edit the spreadsheets directly?

Advanced users can edit the spreadsheets as noted in the sheet for advanced users in the program. However, if you unhide spreadsheets and play with them, you are likely to cause errors.

NOTE: IF YOU EDIT THE SPREADSHEETS without following the guidelines for advanced users--YOU WILL CAUSE THE PROGRAM TO STOP RUNNING.

4. When will 3.1 be released?

September 2023.

5. Why do I need to adjust my macro settings in Excel?

PlusTab is built through a series of compex macros programmed in visual basic for applications. You must enable macros when you open up the PlusTab excel file in order for the program to work.

6. Why do I need to install the Chilkat Email Software?

Because the program looks for that file when you do most functions. When it cannot find it, it will give you error messages.

7. What if I have a problem using the program?


Explain the problem in the email.
