Applies to:

Hyperion Financial Management - Version: to - Release: 9.3 to 11.1
Microsoft Windows (32-bit)


SmartView menu does not appear in the Excel menu bar (Office 2003) or Hyperion tab does not appear in the Ribbon (Office 2007)


Possible causes:

1. The SmartView DLLs are missing or have not been registered successfully during installation.

2. SmartView Add-in has been disabled by Excel.


1. Check that SmartView is enabled
2. Re-install

1. Check that SmartView is enabled
Office 2003:
1.1. Point to Help > About Microsoft Office Excel
1.2. Choose Disabled Items... (button at the bottom)
1.3. If SmartView is listed, select it and choose Enable
1.4. Choose Close
1.5. Close and re-open Excel
Office 2007:
1.1. Choose the Office Button
1.2. Choose Excel Options (at the bottom)
1.3. At the left, select Add-Ins
1.4. Check the top section, 'Active Application Add-ins'. It should list SmartView twice -- see the screenshot. Then scroll to the very bottom and look at the 'Disabled Application Add-ins' section.
1.5. If Smart View for Office shown disabled, select it, change the status to enabled and choose OK.
1.6. Choose Close
1.7. Close and re-open Excel

If this resolves the issue but it keeps recurring, please contact Oracle Support for assistance.

For the remaining steps in this solution, you must be logged into the PC as a local administrator and all unnecessary programs should be closed.

2. Re-install
2.1. Uninstall SmartView and check that all files (especially HsAddin.dll) are not present anywhere on the machine
2.2. Re-install
