Palisades Decision Tools Software: Compile Error

Compile error in hidden module

If you receive a "Compile error in hidden module" message when attempting assignments in Excel using the Palisades software, it is because of an Excel compatibility issue. To fix this try the following:

If you are using an older version of Excel, example Excel 2007:

  1. Install Office 365 through your student email account.
  1. Uninstall all Palisade Decision Tools software (because it's associated with the wrong version of Excel on your computer.)
  2. Reboot your computer
  3. Find the Palisade Decision Tools installation package (on your desktop or in your downloads folder) and reinstall.

NOTE: Do not re-download the software. Use the original install packet that you downloaded the first time to re-install software. If you don't it may cause an installation and upload error.

  1. After install is complete, follow the final prompts to activate software.
  2. Open Excel and start a new worksheet.
  3. Open "Stat Tools" from its desktop icon and the software will automatically "add-in" itself to Excel.
