After installation in some cases when launching Excel #NAME appears in the cells. This might happen because something went wrong during installation and JChemExcelFunction and/or JCFunctions.xla is not activated as an Excel addin.


To solve this issue, please first check if the installation was done properly by an administrator user (if you have questions about installation details, please check this tutorial video about installation.)

7. Browse C:\Program Files (x86)\ChemAxon\JChem for Excel folder and select JCFunctions.xla. Press OK on the dialog.


8. If JCFunctions.xla is not listed in that folder, browse C:\Program Files\ChemAxon\JChem for Excel folder and select JCFunctions.xla. Press OK on the dialog.
