Hi

Im implementing a solution that requires Data Quality Services and Master Data Services integration using MS excel.  My problem is that the Data Quality ribbon is not visible.  I have done the following:

  1. DQS and MDS installed on the same server
  2. Enabled DQS integration via MDS config manager
  3. Installed MDS client for excel on local

I notice that on the ribbon customisation, Data Quality is listed

My environment details
  • SQL Server 2014
  • Windows server 2012
  • Excel 2013

Any assistance would be highly appreciated.

It appears you don't have any data selected. You have to follow certain steps before the options become available. Those are outlined here:

Hi

I have found a solution (I cant however explain why it works).  I readded the commands that are not in the ribbon into a new group and it works.  I experienced the same issue with powerview.

Thanks for your contribution
