running program from USB

I use Excel to do data entry at Town Hall's PC. They will not let me load anything on the PC. I already run a spellchecker as a 'macro' in the actual spreadsheet quite effectively. Is it possible to run an autocomplete program from a USB stick (that I am allowed to insert) to obviate the typing of repetitious entries ?

What you are looking is known as a "portable application".

These are apps that don't need to be installed and can be run from a folder on a system or even an external storage device. I use a couple on a machine with a corporate image where they won't give me Admin rights to install apps.

DAGS portable applications for some sites that offer portable apps.

DAGS portable autocomplete and see what you get.

Don't know if this will do it for you, but it looks promising:

I found a free Autocomplete that has a 'portable mode', but it seems to make no difference to the Town Hall PC - it STILL says I don't have the required permission to run the application. It's called KA Type In, but the author can't be accessed (for advice or help) even though he's made an email address AND an internet contacting service available. I did off course load the program on a USB stick, but don't know how to activate it other than clicking on the EXE, and so triggering the resistance from the PC.
