Important: In Excel for Microsoft 365 and Excel 2021, Power View is removed on October 12, 2021. As an alternative, you can use the interactive visual experience provided by Power BI Desktop, which you can download for free. You can also easily Import Excel workbooks into Power BI Desktop


Assume that you have installed Power View for Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services (SSRS 2012). When you open a report that has any Map visual in Power View or SSRS 2012, you receive an error message at the top of the map.

Each new cumulative update for SQL Server contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous cumulative update. Check out the latest cumulative updates for SQL Server:
