Return Value

True if Excel allows user-defined functions in XLL add-ins to be run on a compute cluster; otherwise False. The setting of the UseClusterConnector property corresponds to the Allow user-defined XLL functions to run on a compute cluster check box under Formulas in the Advanced category of the Excel Options dialog box.

Note Note

To enable the UseClusterConnector property you must install a High Performance Computing (HPC) Cluster Connector. A Cluster Connector enables you to run cluster-safe XLL functions remotely on an HPC cluster for increased performance.

After setting the UseClusterConnector property, use the ClusterConnector property to specify the HPC Cluster Connector to use.
