Enabling the BAM Excel Add-In for Excel 2007

Posted: August 17, 2010  |  Categories: BAM BizTalk Tools

Earlier versions of Office 2007 are quite different with regard to the layout of the menu and some options may be hard to find in the beginning. Add-In is one of these options.

For enabling the BizTalk Server 2006 BAM Add-In for Excel 2007 (assuming that BAM and Excel are already installed), we need to add it to the ribbon so we can access it. We do that by:

  • Going to More Commands… option:
bam add in excel 2007
  • This will open the Excel option’s dialog box and from there you can select Add-Ins. You should select Business Activity Monitoring in the list:
bam add in excel 2007
  • Do not exit from Excel Option box…
    After select Business Activity Monitoring, select Manage: Excel Add-Ins, and press Go…, this will bring up a familiar dialog where you need to check the Business Activity Monitoring Add-In.
bam add in excel 2007
  • Press OK

Having done this the BAM Add-In will now be accessible through the ribbon and you can edit your BAM Activities and Views.
