Couple of simple PowerPivot for Excel Denali questions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have build apps with PowerPivot for Excel released version 2500 and wondering:

    1) Will PowerPivot for Excel/Denali (CTP3  and final release) work with SQL Server 2008 R2?

    2) If I install PowerPivot for Excel/Denali (CTP3 ...) and work on my PowerPivot workbooks, will they still work with the released version of PowerPivot (2500)?

    3) Once PowerPivot for Excel/Denali has been released, will the previous version (2500 or update) still be available?  Or will there only be one download available?

    If answers are available elsewhere, I appologize and would appreciate a link.

  • 1> Yes, the final release works with SQL Server 2008 R2 as a data source

    2. Opening an older powerpivot workbook in a newer release will cause an upgrade to occur... So far, this has worked fine for me.

    3. I don't know what MS will do here..., but I suspect both versions will be available.
