No, we don't support 2013 yet. We do have it working in 2013 and if you install in 2010 and then install 2013 side-by-side it actually shows up in the ribbon and will work against tabular databases. So I think that our main issue is that the Visual Studio setup projects are not yet Excel 2013 aware. But our other issue is that the PowerPivot integration in 2013 has changed so we need to do some changes to try to get that working again (connecting to PowerPivot like this is not officially supported so there it always a chance that we may have to do some work with any new release)

Hi, all of our users are in Excel 2007 and we are upgrading to 2013 skipping 2010 version. I have installed it on 2013 and not working. Do you know when it is going to be ready to be used by Excel 2013?
Thanks you

We have the 2013 version pretty much code complete. I'm just struggling with the installer, I've had to re-build it to try to make it work with Excel 2013 and to make it extensible for some future enhancements we've got in mind. We should have something available in the next week or so.

We are just going through final testing. If you are interested to help us test just click on the "dgosbell" on the left of this post and send me an email. Otherwise we should have something out in the next few days.

Note: we have had to disable the QueryTable feature for Excel 2013 as it does not work reliably and in some cases it even corrupted the workbook.
