How to Enable Master Data Service Excel Add-in

Hi Experts

I have installed and configured Master Data Service on a server which is running SQL Server 2014 and have installed Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 on my local.  I have downloaded and installed the Master Data Services Excel Add-in however the Master Data Services Ribbon does not show in Excel

Any assistance?

Go to File Options then Add-Ins, then check if the Add-In is enabled there.

The problem has been resolved

Reinstalling ddin't fix the problem.  I downloaded SQL Server Data Tools for SQL Server 2014 for VS2013 (SSDTBI_x86_ENU) from microsoft which contains the MASTERDATASERVICESEXCELADDIN.MSI file, and it is this installation that worked.  I do not understand why previous add-ins ddnt work

Thanks for the help
