Datamanager no longer appears in excel

Today, I tried to install the lastest version of the EPM addin for MS excel, so removed version 8 SP4 and installed version 10.

Unfortunately, I can now no longer see the datamanager, only the epm addin is visible. I have looked under the addins - disable items but no luck. Also tried to install one version before 9 SP1, but also no luck.

Is there anything else I can try?

Thanks

Timothy

    Hello Timothy,

    Please have a look at the KBA 1694091. Hopefully it helps.

    It speaks about how to disable the Data Manager tab in Excel, but you can use it in reverse 😊

    Best Regards,

    Hello Timothy,

    We had faced a similar issue earlier. The reason was the corrupt installation of environmentshell. What we did was cleaned environmentshell and activated it again using UJS_ACTIVATE_CONTENT from the backend BI.

    Please check if you can see DM add-in in environmentshell. If not, I am afraid it's not installed properly and you might have to clean and activate BI content again.

    Before this, try logging with sys admin ID just to ensure that it's not an authorization issue.

    Hope it helps!!

    This did indeed do the trick. How easy can things be if only you know where to look... I can finally stop reinstalling the addin to see if that works 😊
