On PC Lab machines you should see the Datastream Charting add-in, but you will need to add the Datastream Excel add-in manually each time:

  2. Then open Excel, click File, Options, Add-Ins
  3. Click Go at the bottom next to Manage, then Browse
  4. Find this folder C:\Program Files\Datastream\Datastream Advance and select the file AdvanceOffice.xlam and click OK
  5. You should now see both the Charting and Datastream add-ins on one Excel tab
