I'm using Odoo only online because I have a Mac. 

I've been searching hours on the forums but I stil don't get how to install the following module: "Add XLS export to accounting reports."

I downloaded it but as I don't have any software installed on my computer it's useless.

I can't managed to find it on the list of module. I didn't found either a way to update the list on Modules

Help pleaseee!

you cannot install external (i.e. community written) extensions on the odoo hosted saas offering - that is the loss of flexibility that you pay for in exchange for them handling automatic bugfix upgrades and major release migrations. With their hosting you only get to switch on and off the core modules that are accessible via the setting/modules listing. There is talk of them allowing 'data-only' modules for installing things like website themes, etc, but that is for the future perhaps.
