The add-in contains further instructions, including how to download/insert free sample documents that show you how to use the add-in to automate Word content updates (from Excel calculations, data, and charts).

Note that you cannot add new add-ins to protected Excel workbooks (in Windows). You must first add the add-in to a new or unprotected document (you only need to do this once). Then open your protected workbook, then you should be able to activate the add-in from the ribbon "Home" tab.
