    Connecting to Power Pivot as a data source

    Ashok Bhatta

      Hi Community Members,


      I was trying Tableau 9.3 to connect to Power Pivot 2013 using Sharepoint URL and I couldn't connect to the data source. I got an error:


      Download and install the drivers, and then connect.

      Detailed Error Message:


      • It appears that you don't have Tableau PowerPivot Add-In (Excel Add-In) installed. Please install Tableau PowerPivot Add-In and try again.
      • Unable to connect to the server. Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database.


      I installed the required drivers and still couldn't connect to the data source. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
