Calling the NAG Fortran Library from Excel 2003 – update

March 3rd, 2009 | Categories: NAG Library, programming | Tags:

I recently made a few minor updates to my original Fortran NAG / Excel tutorial and so am making it available here. If anyone finds this useful or has any other detail to add then let me know.  I consider this to be an evolving document and will consider additions and modifications on request.

The tutorial assumes you are using the thread safe version of Mark 21 of the Fortran libraries – FLDLL214ML

Some people have questioned why I ever looked into this combination and my answer is simple – If you find yourself needing to do some serious numerical work with Microsoft Excel then (in my opinion at least) you are advised to hand over the numerical heavy lifting to something that is capable.  The NAG library is more than capable.

    I tried to access the link for Fortran NAG/Excel totorial. Unfortunately, I don’t have access to the above link. Could you please advise me how to access that totorial?

    Hi Yong

    You should be able to get it at

    It’s rather out of date I’m afraid!
