SQL SERVER – Enable PowerPivot Plugin in Excel

Recently I had interesting experience at one conference. My PowerPivot plugin got disabled and I had no clue how to enable the same. After while, I figured out how to enable the same. Once I got back from the event, I searched online and realize that many other people online are facing the same problem. Here is how I solved the problem.

When I started Excel it did not load PowerPivot plugin. I found in option>> Add in the plug in to be disabled. I enabled the plugin and it worked very well. Let us see that with images.

  • HI Pinal!
    Good timing with your blog! :) I’ve just installed PowerPivot for Excel but I can’t make it work.

    I both done it according to Microsofts webb site and you’re instructions above.

    Any other tips besides the one’s above?

    Ps. Great blog!

    Regards,
    Shakir

  • Thanks Pinal, With newer releases of the office suite, I am also finding that options and features are kind of buried inside. I guess it takes while to get used to new interface of MS office products.

    Just a small tip – we have found add-ins (like PowerPivot, and a custom add-in deployed by the application I work on) to get disabled if Office experienced a crash or if it did not have enough memory to load all add-ins in memory. Enabling the add-in might resolve the issue for a couple of sessions, untill the underlying issue returns (a crashing macro, code or insufficient memory).

    Thanks & Regards,
