When I start MS Excel, I can't see PowerPivot in the menu.

Check your Excel version:

- Start Excel
- Click on File > Options > Add-Ins > Manage COM Add-Ins
- Activate PowerPivot

If you don't see the Power Pivot for Excel COM Add-In, then you do not have the ProPlus version of Excel installed.

Apple MAC user: PowerPivot is not implemented in Excel for Mac. The problem is, PowerPivot needs the Vertipaq OLAP engine which does not run on iOS.
