How to Load Excel’s “Analysis ToolPak”

This is the add-in necessary for running regressions.  So, if you want to try to do the ski resort ranking assingment, you’ll need to download and install this.  There are other Excel based software add-ins that will allow you to do multiple regressions from within Excel, but this one has been around for about 20 years and is by far the most common.

  3. Click Go.
  4. In the Add-Ins available box, select the Analysis ToolPak check box, and then click OK.

    2. If you get prompted that the Analysis ToolPak is not currently installed on your computer, click Yes to install it.
  5. After you load the Analysis ToolPak, the Data Analysis command is available in the Analysis group on theData tab.
