Enabling the BAM Excel Add-In for Excel 2007

Earlier versions of Office 2007 are quite different with regard to the layout of 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-addin-excel2007-1

  • This will open the Excel options dialog box and from there you can select Add-Ins. You should select “Business Activity Monitoring” in the list:

bam-addin-excel2007-2

  • 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.

  • 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.
