Hi there

 

Been going round in circles trying to work out why powerpivot isn't showing within excel.

 

Found this link - https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Where-is-Power-Pivot-aa64e217-4b6e-410b-8337-20b87e1c2a4b - which seems to indicate that it should be available for any 365 version that has desktop as part of it (mine does - Office 365 Home).

 

There was a lot of posts around the place prior to this year where it looked like powerpivot was NOT a part of Office 365 Home - but the link I put in indicates from 8th January 2019 it should be.

 

Is anyone able to tell me if my Office 365 Home should have PowerPivot or not?  I'm trying to update some work files, but I can't because of th

Yes, Power Pivot shall be on Office 365 Home. Check File->Options->Add-ins->COM Add-Ins (drop-down list at the bottom)->Go and here you'll see is it in the list or not. If here and not checked, check it, all Ok:s and restart Excel.

@Sergei Baklan  thanks for that.

 

I have tried the steps you have suggested.  It does not appear in the COM addins, and it does not appear in the Disabled addin section either.

 

I have also uninstalled office and reinstalled it.

 

Any other ideas I can try?

I have a hunch that the article at support.microsoft.com is simply incorrect misinformation and PowerPivot is still limited to enterprise class 365 plans and standalone copies of Office Professional. 

 

I've tried using a 365 family plan as well as a 365 Business Standard plan and neither one work. It DOES work when I buy/install a standalone copy of Office Professional (non-subscription). INSANE that I have to buy office multiple times when Microsoft's own site says it should be included.
