How to get Ablebits tabs in Excel

Two tabs, Ablebits Data and Ablebits Tools, are added to the Excel ribbon automatically after installation of Ultimate Suite. If you haven't done this yet, you can install a fully-functional trial version now to test 70+ time-saving tools that automate routine operations in Excel.

Upon installation, you will find two new tabs in your Excel:

Ablebits Data tab - contains the primary features to merge, deduplicate, split, extract and manage Excel data.

No Ablebits tabs although Ultimate Suite is installed

If you have Ultimate Suite installed but the Ablebits tabs are still missing, the problem may be caused by Office or Windows updates. To make the Ablebits tabs show up on your Excel ribbon, try the troubleshooting solutions below.

Note. Not activated and unlicensed Microsoft Office does not run add-ins correctly.
Tip. If the Ablebits tabs have disappeared from your Excel all of a sudden, check if the add-in got disabled.

If none of these solutions was helpful, please contact us.

Excel doesnt force you to use one drive it simply trys to encourage you to use it

With it being new PC have you looked in security settings in excel to see if you need to turn stuff on? same for add ins and while there developer mode

I just purchased a new computer running MS Office 365 under Windows 11. MS Office 365 forces Excel to open documents in OneDrive and AbleBits Ultimate Suite for Excel does not want to load into Excel under those conditions. "Loading Ultimate Suite Manually" does not work because the Excel/File/Options strategy does not allow access to "AddIns".

How do I get Ultimate Suite for Excel to work with MS 365 Excel running under Windows 11?

Thank you,
