The error "Compile Error in Hidden Module: XlamJetFunctions" or "Compile Error in Hidden Module: XlaJetFunctions" occurs when Jet is not properly registered on the machine or the current user does not have sufficient permissions to access the registered components.

If you are using Office 365 (or any version of Office that was installed using Microsoft's "Click to Run" installation method):

This a known issue which can result after a "Click to Run" update has been applied to Excel.

Otherwise :


  1. Disable the Jet add-in either:
    1. through the Start/Windows Button --> Start | All Programs | Jet Essentials 20xx | Deactivate {or 'Disable Jet add-in'}]
    2. or following the steps for Manually Enabling / Disabling Jet Essentials
  2. Ensure that no Excel processes are currently running (Check the Processes tab of the Windows Task Manager)
  3. Uninstall Jet  from the "Add/Remove Programs" {or "Programs and Features" } in the Control Panel
  4. Reinstall Jet ( NOTE: If you are installing Jet on Windows Vista, Windows 7/8, or Windows Server 2008/R2, be sure to install Jet by right-clicking the Jet setup file and selecting "Run as Administrator" even if you are currently logged in as an Administrator.)



- When installing Jet on Windows Vista, Windows 7/8, or Windows Server 2008/R2, it may also be necessary to enable the Jet add-in by right-clicking the Jet activation utility [Start | All Programs | Jet Essentials | Activate] and selecting "Run as Administrator "

- If you have other add-ins enabled in Excel, it may be necessary to temporarily disable all other add-ins prior to enabling the Jet add-in.
