Data mining tool for Excel

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :

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

'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



Recent install of add in  Excel data mining on excel 2007 when I press the classification matrix button for example it gives me the error : A connection to analysis service is required to perform the classification matrix task.

I click new connection then new,, I type in my name , and then test connection then another error Test connection Failed Aconnection cannot be made ensure that the server is running : No such host is known.

Can someone please help me with this so i may use the data mining feature on my spread sheets thanks in advance :]

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?

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

Can anyone say if this is typical at other organizations?

Passing Data to a Cell in Excel



I have a webpage that is created in Visual Studio 2008 and programmed in C#.

I have a web form that prompts the user to enter a value into a text box.  For now, I do not have any validation on that field (I will be adding that later).

I need to pass the value that the user has entered to cell C1 of the excel spreadsheet (user_info.xls).

I understand that using excel is not ideal, but unforutnately need to try to make this work with the excel spreadsheet.

I do not have any code for this yet, because I honestly do not know how to begin.

The action of poulating the excel spreadsheet will be intialized from the On Click event of a Submit button.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your assistance,
