Hello Kenneth,

Thank you for your comment. For us to understand the problem better, please send us your license key for the Ablebits product and a screenshot of the error message you're getting to

We'll do our best to help you.


Do you have any automation option to automatically run the query on the data (consolidate data) every day or on demand ?

Thank you.


Hello Raph,

Thank you for your question.

Sorry, we don't have such functionality. I wish I could assist you more.


Is there any way i can install the add in without requiring admin rights?



Please try to install the Business edition of the add-in that doesn't require admin rights for installation. You can download the most recent version from this web-page.

If you have any other questions or need assistance with the installation, please contact us at


Thanks for this information. But, does this mean that we are unable to use the Personal edition if we don't have Admin rights? Or can I change it from the Business edition to the Personal edition after the installation is complete?

Hello John,

You can contact your IT admin to install the Personal edition for you. Alternatively, you can upgrade your license to Business one. Please let me know what you prefer. Thank you.

I just purchase merge wizard tables for excel from Apple store, but when I tried to merge lookup table, "PLEASE SELECT A VALID RANGE'' pops up. I tried the free version, was happy with it. Now I really am disappointed. Is there any way to get things right ?

Hi, is there a MAC version available? Thanks Bill


Thank you for your comment, Bill.

I'm sorry, our software doesn’t work for Mac. The current versions of the add-ins work for Microsoft Windows only.

However, you can have a look at Power Tools for Google Sheets that has similar functionality and can be run in a browser on your Mac. You can test it out for 30 days for free to see if it suits your needs:

When Upgrading Office 2016 to Office 365 for Business, Ablebits is broken, requiring a complete uninstall and reinstall of the Ablebits. We are using version 18.2.1197.5836


Hello John,
Thank you for contacting us.

Please first try to install the latest version of Ultimate Suite and check if the problem persists there:
- Uninstall the current version of Ultimate Suite via Control Panel.
- Download and install the latest Ultimate Suite directly from this page.
- Open Excel and make sure you see Ablebits tabs in your Ribbon and everything works correctly.

If, however, you encounter any difficulties when installing/using the software, please contact us at We'll do our best to help you.

Hello John,

After the last update of ablebit addon voor Outlook Hitman Pro Alert closes Excel because of the excel-ultimate-suite-loader.updater.exe.

I tried to exclude the exe but it don't work, i also tried to remane it but a new is created automaticly and stops Ecxel again. Only exclude Excel.exe or disable exploitprevention works but that cannot be the case.

How can I prevent that exel is stoped by hitman pro but can use ablebit addon



Hi Bert,
Thank you for reporting this issue, I am sorry you are experiencing this. It looks like you are using an older version of the add-in and this is the cause. Please uninstall Ultimate Suite you have and install the updated version:

Please let me know if this helped.
Thank you.
