  20. 20. Power BI and Excel 2010 Software Solution Power Pivot A version one of Power Pivot is available for Excel 2010. Microsoft’s website provides video, demos, and hands-on labs to try out the software. Opening up an Excel 2010 Power Pivot workbook in Excel 2013 requires an irreversible upgrade (meaning that collaboration between Excel 2010 and Excel 2013 users is not possible – pick one version or the other). There are some technical details involved in upgrading, which you can study by clicking this link. Power Map Power Map is not available for Excel 2010. Versions of Excel previous to 2002 had a native map feature. Though, advanced Excel users will know about Microsoft MapPoint, which has gone through nineteen versions since its debut. Sadly, MapPoint is being discontinued as of December 31, 2014. You might be able to obtain a copy now, or through some MSDN subscriptions. Power Query Power Query is available for Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus with Software Assurance. There are two versions, one for 32-bit (x86) and one for 64-bit (x64). Power View Power View is not available for Excel 2010.
