Adding chemical intelligence to Excel
ChemDraw includes an Excel add-in — but you have to tell Excel that you want to use it! This video provides a step-by-step demonstration of installing ChemDraw into MicroSoft Excel, including the following lessons:
- On Excel's "Tools" menu, select "Add-ins" and turn on ChemOffice or ChemDraw.
- In Excel, chemically-intelligent spreadsheets include a menu item like "ChemOffice11" right next to the "Window" menu.
- To create chemical spreadsheets, use menu item "New ChemOffice Worksheet" instead of "File > New > Worksheet".
- To identify chemical spreadsheets, the Excel worksheet name is "ChemOffice1" instead of "Sheet1".
- When using chemical spreadsheets, molecular structures are embedded within cells, instead of "floating" above cells.
- A new set of "ChemDraw Functions" appears on the "Insert Function" list, alongside "Financial" and "Statisitical" functions.
- ChemDraw Functions include chemical analysis, property predictions, molecular topology, and SMILES conversions.
