Can't seem to connect to a local PowerPivot model


I have that PowerPivot file that we are using on a daily basis.
DAX Studio can't seem to be able to connect to the model, nor lists it as available connections.

Has been resolved upon reboot of the computer...

Contacted David to check the w/b selection & possible usage of the book for testing if not resolved

Hi, there.

I have the same problem as mentioned above. However, It wasn't sorted out by rebooting.
PowerPivot Version 10.50.4000.0 is installed in Excel 2010 and a PPVT model is in the workbook from where I am trying to open DAX studio. It opens correctly but It doesn't connect to the model unfortunately

I installed both versions (1.0.1 and 1.0.0) but I didn't succeed.

I hope somebody could give me a hand. Thanks a lot,

Do you have a Pivottable saved in the PowerPivot workbook. At the moment we can only find a PowerPivot model by checking all the connections on all the pivot tables in your workbook.

Hi, all.

I had the PowerPivot v1 installed on my PC so I changed it to PPVT v2. Now Dax Studio seems to work :)
