I'm using Excel 2013 and having no luck getting the Excel2LaTeX add-in to do my bidding.

When I view my add-ins from the options menu, all seems well--Excel2LaTeX shows up, and its checkbox is marked when I go to "Manage Add-Ins".

However, there is nothing on the tool bar: no Add-Ins Ribbon, no shortcut buttons to be found under any existing headings--it's like it disappeared!!

Anyone able to figure out what's going on?

From readme file of Excel2LaTeX:

INSTALLATION ~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just open the file Excel2LaTeX.xla in Excel. Then you will have two additional menu items in your "Tools" menu and a new toolbar with two buttons on it. For Excel 2007 and later, you will have two new buttons in the "Add-Ins" ribbon. If you plan to use the program frequently, you can save it in your addin directory and add it with Tools/Add-in. This way it will be loaded whenever Excel is opened.

The addin directory maps to C:\Users\Anupama\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\AddIns for me. You have to replace Anupama by your user name though.

Following works for me:

Double click on Excel2LaTeX.xla. Excel opens it with a warning:

Click on Enable Macros . You will get ADDD-INS like this:
