Re-enabling OnePager Express Add-In in Microsoft Excel 2003

The following instructions walk you through how to make sure that OnePager Express is enabled in Microsoft Excel 2003. If you are using a different version of Microsoft Excel, please read the version of this article that covers Excel 2007 or Excel 2010-2016 instead.

  1. In Microsoft Excel 2003, go to Help->About Microsoft Office Excel and click on the Disabled Items button at the bottom of the page:
    Excel Options
  2. Make sure that OnePager Express hasn't been disabled. The list of disabled items should be blank, as shown below:
    Manage Disabled Items
  3. If OnePager Express has been disabled, select it, click Enable, and re-start Microsoft Excel.
  4. If you still don't see OnePager Express, go to View->Toolbars->Customize...
  5. Click on the Commands tab, select Tools in the left panel, and locate the COM Add-Ins menu command as shown below:
    Microsoft Excel 2003 Commands Form
  6. Drag and drop the COM Add-ins menu command back to the Tools menu as shown below:
    Make sure that COM Add-Ins is on the Tools menu
  7. The Tools menu will now have an option called COM Add-Ins as shown below:
    The COM Add-Ins choice now appears on the Tools menu
  8. Click the COM Add-Ins command that you just created and you will see a form that looks like the one below. OnePager Express should be listed as a COM add-in, and the box next to it should be checked:
    Manage COM Add-Ins.
    IMPORTANT: In rare cases, the "Location" in the screenshot above will be blank. This is an indication that OnePager Express is partially installed, but that you do not have the correct Windows user permissions to finish the installation in Microsoft Excel. To remedy this, uninstall OnePager and ask someone with installation permission to install it in your account. Or do a per-machine installation by installing from a batch file in which you set ALLUSERS=1 as described in the Readme file, or in these advanced installation instructions. Again, this step is only required if you see a blank "Location" in the form shown above.
  9. If the box is not checked, check it, and click OK.
