Have you ever wondered?
In the past, Solver was available as a free download at www.solver.com/mac, but it’s so popular and useful that we included it in our recent release. No extra downloads required: just enable the Solver Add-In and then click the Solver button under the Data tab on the Excel Ribbon.
And speaking of powerful math and statistics in Excel, you may also want to check out the latest release of XLSTAT , from Addinsoft, a statistical package that works smoothly on both Macs and PCs. Version 2011.2 is compatible with Excel for Mac 2011 SP1 and has been updated to generate VBA code to automate your statistical analyses.
