What Are "Client Tools"" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    This has been bugging me for a while. The option is on the column shortcut menu in the power pivot window.
    When I select it, the column is hidden.

    I've looked in the help file to see what else this option is suppose to do, but couldn't find anything. I searched this forum, but didn't see anything that the option does, except hide/unhide a column.

    Is that all the option does?

  • The main client tool is Excel (pivot tables). But if you deploy your workbook to Sharepoint you can also use Power View, Reporting Services, other 3rd party tools like Tableau or even a custom application to access the data in your model - all of those things are "client tools".

  • Ahhhh, Michiel,

    Thank you for clearing this mystery up for me. For the life of me, I just couldn't figure this one out.
