What is the Microsoft Excel Analysis ToolPak?

Quite simply, the Analysis ToolPak is an Excel add-in that contains numerous date, statistical, financial, and engineering functions that are not included in the core set of functions that are automatically installed when you install Excel on your computer.

The Analysis ToolPak is developed by Microsoft and is included in your purchase of the Excel software.  However, depending on the options you selected when installing Excel, you may have to go through a few additional steps to make the ToolPak functions accessible to your worksheets.

Function reference for the ToolPak functions is included in the standard Excel help files.  However, if you attempt to use one of the ToolPak functions without having the add-in properly installed, the function will return the #NAME? error.
