Choose Add-Ins from the navigation bar on the left and in the Manage box, select Excel Add-ins. Click Go.
In the Add-Ins available dialog-box, select the Analysis ToolPak check box and click OK.
If Analysis ToolPak is not listed in the Add-Ins available dialog-box, click Browse to locate it.
If you receive a message that the Analysis ToolPak is not currently installed on your computer, click Yes to install it.
