I downloaded powerpivot for Excel 2010 and I don't know how I ever lived without it !!!!

However, as many have noted the lack of ability to do custom sorts is frustrating. (Jan,Feb, Mar, etc)

I bought both Bill Jelens and Rob Collies books and find them invaluable. I Rob's book there is a tip on accomplishing this type of sort and he talks obut using the "sort by column" icon on the design ribbon. I don't have this option available. Further research indicates that I need to be using Powerpivot V2. However, I am having difficulty locating "V2" on the Microsoft site.

Can anyone tell me how I can get the "latest and greatest version of Powerpivot for Excel 2010 and what specific file I need to download?

Did I mention I think powerpivot is the greatest thing since sliced bread?

Thanks in advance for the help.

The Roman numeral for 40 is XL. Bill "MrExcel" Jelen's 40th book was called MrExcel XL.

Thank you and I have another question. I have read a couple of blog entries that indicate upgrading from V1 to V2 can cause unexpected problems. In your opinion, would it be best to completly remove powerpivot before downloading and installing the new version? If so, can you recomend the right way to go about this or perhaps provide a good resource that explains the process.

Thanks again for the support.
