Excel 2007 Data Mining Add-in disappear

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :


I install add-in and run fine for a while, then all of sudden I could not see Table Analyze tool and data mining tab at my ribbon. I re-run server configuration and re-connect to DMAddinDB (remote server, but I am the administrator), but data mining add-in and table analyzer still not showing at my ribbon.


Then I uninstall DMAddin, re-install it, go through configuration again, but still the tabs are not showing up.


Any idea you can help me get my add in back?

'Culture 'en' is a neutral culture - excel data mining add-in


I am running the SQL Server data mining add - in for excel and have been running into problems with certain Data mining functions.  In particular anything that uses the tree graph.  I am receiving the following error.  I have a colleague that has installed the same add-in and is not running into any issues.  I have exhausted all obvious trouble shooting steps with no luck. I am running into a brick wall when it comes to finding anyone else experiencing this issue with regard to this add-in.  



The tree graph cannot be created because of the following error:

'Culture 'en' is a neutral culture. It cannot be used in formatting and parsing and therefore cannot be set as the thread's current culture.


The language on my PC is set to English (United States).  All references to this error that I have been able to find, which is limited to a couple obscure postings, are associated with programming and setting the culture in the code or under properties - neither apply to using the add-in within Excel.  Can someone please shed some

Excel data mining add-in dissapears


2 of us were able to download and install the excel data mining add-in, the tab showed up in the ribbon and it behaved normally. Some number od fays later it was no longer showing in the ribbon. We re-installed more than once and it never reappears. We did see reference to enable disabled add-ins but it does not show up as disabled and in fact show up as enabled in the excel options add-in screen. We are running Office 2010, Windows 7.

Any ideas why it dissapears and why we can't even re-install it?


SSAS 2008 data refresh problem in Excel 2007



My problem sounds like that:

I have some cube created with SSAS 2008 and I'm using Excel 2007 as browser to view cube data.

I made pivot table with nessesary data, everything works fine till I save excel file and sent it to my client.

When client uses some filter, some row measures disapear. Dimension data are shown, measures are blank cells, but calculations from those measures is filled.

e.g. I see difference of sales between years in percent, but I can't see measures, which were used to count that difference, because in excel I see blank cells.

Any ideas?

I requested access to use the excel 2005 data mining addin from our IT group and this is the message


I requested access to use the excel 2005 data mining addin from our IT group (specifically being able to connect to ana instance of analysis services and have the addin create models on the server. This is the message my IT group sent me

The 2005 data mining add in requires SSAS administrative privileges to install and operate. Since there is no separate SSAS administrative role outside of sysadmin for the instance, the IT policy is not to grant sysadmin roles to end users.

Can anyone say if this is typical at other organizations?

Data mining tool for Excel


Hi, I downloaded and setup the DM mining tool on a win 7 64 bit, office 2010 64 bit, firing excel shows me a new ribon with "Design" item but not the analysis item.

I tired on other laptopns with same configuration, got the same result. Then after searching a little bit I understood that tis add-in didn't work with 64 bit version of office 2010 while in RC state. Is it still the same so far with the release version of office.

I have only 1 laptop with office 2007, the proble it is not in my domain so it can not access analysis services. I tried creating same credentials on AS and the laptop but still can not access the AS.

Than in advance
