Add-in Ribbon won't stay in Excel

Hi,

I wonder if anybody had similar experience and any solution to this.

Normally the S&OP / IBP ribbon will appear in Excel at launch, on occasion when Excel disabled the Add-in, user can enable it back manually with File / Options / Add-in / Manage - COM Add-in.

For a small number of our users, every time when they open up Excel, the S&OP Add-in ribbon is disabled by default, so they have to go through the path every time to enable it.

Is there a way to make sure the S&OP Add-in button stays enabled at launch of Excel?

Thank you.

Yee Ann

    Hello Yee Ann,

    Just saw the same thing with a colleague running Office 2013 on Windows 8.1 - he's the first to experience it here at SAP.

    With my colleague we fixed the situation (for now) by switching the load behavior from 0 to 3 in the registry (the installer should set it to 3 - haven't figured out how it became 0 yet). Other tips may be found in note http://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/1645616.

    To modify the registry:

    • regedit.exe
    • Navigate to path Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\FPMXLClient.Connect
    • Right-click on LoadBehavior, select Modify
    • Change value from 0 to 3

    We'll keep an eye on it to see if we can understand what caused the situation.

    Cheers,

    Cora

    Hi,

    One of our users having similar kind of issue and she has followed the exact steps but it didn't get solve.

    The LoadBehavior was already set to 3 under FPMXLClient.Connect and was never 0 but still the IBP icon disables every time.

    Please help
