The analysis toolpak is a visual basic add-in. Excel 2008 does not support visual basic add-ins. The formulas that were contained in the analysis toolpak are already included in Excel 2008, so you already have those. TheATP wizards are no longer available in XL08, but spreadsheets with similar functionality are available at. Note If the Data Analysis command is unavailable on theTools menu, see the 'Install and load the Analysis ToolPak' section. In the Analysis Tools box, click the tool you want to use. Enter the input range and the output range, and then select the options that you want.
Microsoft's Mac Business Unit has announced that it has a solution for Excel 2008 users who suddenly found themselves without the Analysis ToolPack, the Visual Basic-based data analysis add-on from previous versions of Excel. The Mac Excel team collaborated with third-party software developer AnalystSoft, and the two came up with StatPlus:mac LE.
Data Analysis Toolpak For Mac
StatPlus:mac LE is a wholly independent application, like Solver for Excel 2008. It uses AppleScript to communicate with Excel--both applications need to be running with the worksheet containing the data you want to analyze open. In StatPlus:mac LE, select the analysis function you need. From there, you can select a data range, set variables, and perform the analysis similarly to ATP. The Mac Excel team worked closely with AnalystSoft to make sure that StatPlus:mac LE covered all the same functions that ATP did. So, if linear regression, z-tests, and one-way ANOVA get you hot under the collar, StatPlus:mac LE will definitely fit the bill.

The good news for those who need the features of ATP is that StatPlus:mac LE is a free download. The bad news is that it is essentially a nagware version of StatPlus:mac Pro, the $250 version that has 'many extra features to help you analyze data better and more professionally.' Littered throughout the menus are numerous grayed out options with a little 'pro' icon next to them, ? la QuickTime Player. The LE version does seem to cover the most common analysis functions, though, and for the rest of this week AnalystSoft is offering a 20 percent discount on the Pro version. You could grab it for just $200 if you need any of its advanced analysis functions. Academic discounts are also available.

The nagware annoyance aside, StatPlus:mac LE should suffice for many users, especially those that have been stuck with Excel 2004 and haven't been too thrilled with its performance under Rosetta. And, for those that have more advanced analysis needs, StatPlus:mac Pro may prove to be a useful solution.
