Downloaded MasterDataServicesExcelAddin-x64.msi, but it fails the install cause it is looking for excel 2016. As we are an enterprise organization, we are on office 365. We have many sql server licenses, as well.

I need some of my users to update data to sql server, and they are comfortable with excel. This will allow them to do so.

    Is there any error message about this issue? If yes, please take a screenshot and share with us.
    Please check whether the user’s computers have installed Office 2016 before, or whether they installed other 2016 versions of Microsoft products with Microsoft 365.

    I test on my environment with Microsoft 365 apps for enterprise, the Microsoft SQL Server 2016 MDS Add-ins could be installed successfully.
