Power Pivot could not load data model RRS feed

  • Question

  • I downloaded EXCEL 2013 Trial edition. I downloaded the Power Pivot add-in and enabled it in Excel 2013.

    I was able to work with a SSRS report as a data feed and saved the work book. Now couple of days later I try to open the saved work book and it fails.

    I create a new work book and try to recreate what I had done earlier and I get the above message.

    Is there any thing that can be fixed or should I go through another round of

    uninstall

    Install

    Install add-in etc?

  • The error message, short.and not so sweet is in the title of the post. Excel and Power Pivot should have same architecture, 32 with 32 or 64 with 64. I finally repaired Excel 2013 and now it is working. New problem cropped up, now I cannot connect to SSRS native mode. Report Server is working but lost client connectivity.

  • What add-in did you install? Can you provide the link?

    To my knowledge, the only downloadable PowerPivot add-in is the one for Excel 2010, which is not compatible with Excel 2013.

    By the way, you forgot to provide the error message.

    Hi mysorian,

    It seems you original issue has been solved. For the new question, it is more related to SQL Server Reporting Services. For better support, I would recommend you post the detail information about this issue in SQL Server Reporting Services, Power View forum.
