    I have Office Professional Plus 2013, but the power view add on is not appearing in my Com Add in section. Do I need to download a key? I have looked through a number of site but not been able to find a resolution?

      There is nothing to activate. Check in the menu File > Account the version of your Excel. Just bellow the logo Office, you have the product informations

      Matt, it’s in preview right now until May 2014. You can download it from here:



      EDIT: This is for Power Map, not Power View, sorry. The Power BI ‘bundle’ will be available (once out of preview) for all Professional Plus versions, but Power Map will only be available for ProPlus (365 subscribers only).
