JChem for Office

Back to index page

JChem for Office is ChemAxon's chemoinformatics solution in Microsoft Office products enabling scientists to manage and analyse chemical structures and their data in Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Outlook and OneNote. Since JChem for Excel is rather a data analysis tool, while JChem for Office is rather a reporting tool, the documentation of these products is separated. (JChem for OneNote is only a prototype yet.) You can find the User's Guide for JChem for Excel on our webpage http://www.chemaxon.com/jchem4excel/userguide/.

JChem for Office works with the standard ChemAxon licensing infrastructure, and also allows several points of extension. If additional license files are specified, JChem for Office takes into consideration all of the licenses. Since JChem for Excel (JCXL) is part of the JChem for Office (JCO) package, the JCO license is valid for JCXL as well, but JCXL license is not appropriate for JCO. When installing JCO you can decide if you want to install it together with JCXL (see in related topic in JCO User's Guide).

 

The default location of the license file (license.cxl) is:

 

You can find information about licensing in License File Location topic in this guide.

You can use a few JChem for Office features without having a valid license:

-visualize structures in JChem for Office documents worksheets

-print out JChem for Office documents worksheets

-run the license form/settings.

 

It is always advised to install the latest released version of JChem for Office or JChem for Excel (JCXL), which can be downloaded from ChemAxon's website:

If you have only JCXL (without JChem for Office) it is advised to uninstall first your current version from your computer in Control Panel/Programs/Programs and Features and then install the new version.

If you previously had JChem for Excel but currently purchased a JChem for Office license, please uninstall first your current version from your computer in Control Panel/Programs/Programs and Features and then install the new version of JChem for Office. If your JCO license has already been installed in one of the four products (Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Excel), it will be valid in all other three products. So, license installation has to be done only once.
