I had some difficulty installing PowerPivot in Excel 2010, I hit all the "COM addon will not run" proiblems but I now seem to have it working.
I have created a small set of tables in an Excel workbook to use as a data-mart type example. One fact table with a couple of linked dimensions and a date reference table.
I have loaded the data into PowerPivot and inserted a combined (vertical pair) Pivot Chart and Pivot Table.
Everything works fine until I try to add a field to a slicer from the PowerPivot Field list into either the "Slicers Vertical" or "Slicers Horizontal" area, where I get the error-
Slicer Field could not be added. Reason: Exception from HRESULT: 0x800A03EC
I have stopped and restarted both Excel and the computer, dieabled and re-enabled the COM addin, but this error is persistent.
Strangely, if I add a slicer to the sheet via the Analyze->Insert Slicer option from the ribbon rather than using the PowerPivot field list it seems to work correctly.
I have found plenty of references for other error codes in PowerPivot but not much for this one.
Any ideas on how to fix it woudl be much appreciated.
