Reproducing the Issue

  • Install Analysis for office 2.2 on Office 2016 32 bit while EPM Add-in 4.0 big vol is installed.


This is caused by the fact that Analysis for office is not behaving like EPM add-in while EPM add-in 4.0 big vol is compatible with both Office versions 32/64 bit Analysis for office is not.


  • Please Install the 32 bit version of Analysis for office instead of using the 64 bit if you are having MS Office 2016 32 bit version, only EPM add-in has this capability.
