What is XLAM File Format?
The XLAM (Excel Add-in) file format is a specialized file format used in Microsoft Excel to store and distribute add-ins, which are additional functionalities or customizations that extend the capabilities of Excel. An XLAM file contains VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) code, macros, custom functions, and other elements that can enhance and automate Excel’s functionality.
XLAM files are designed to be loaded as add-ins within Excel, providing users with additional features and tools that are not available by default. These add-ins can be created by users or developers to streamline repetitive tasks, perform complex calculations, create custom functions, or interact with external systems and data sources.
One of the advantages of the XLAM format is its portability and ease of distribution. Once an XLAM file is created, it can be easily shared with others, allowing them to install and use the add-in in their own Excel environment. This makes it convenient for teams or organizations to standardize their workflows and share custom functionalities across multiple users.
XLAM files can be loaded into Excel by navigating to the “Add-ins” section in the Excel options and selecting the desired add-in file. Once loaded, the add-in’s functionality becomes available within Excel, providing users with additional features, menus, or toolbars tailored to their specific needs.
