Get Back in The Box
16 October 2013
Regular readers are probably getting rather bored with our running commentary on the trials and tribulations of picking up a copy of Power Pivot via the purchase of the Excel 2013 Standalone package.
However, we have it on good authority now (i.e. from Microsoft) that the Excel 2013 Standalone SKU should now include the eagerly anticipated Business Intelligence add-ins when installed. Please let us know if anyone still continues to have problems…
Update: It has been reported that in many cases Office requires an uninstallation / reinstallation in order for Power Pivot to appear in the COM add-ins. However, for the resilient amongst you, if you do indeed complete the Microsoft Trial of Fire, you should come out the other end with Power Pivot and other assorted BI goodies.
