Analyze in Excel on Mac - ODC file doesn't open

Using Power BI online and choosing Analyze in Excel, a file .ODC extension drops to My Downloads on my MacBookPro. However, it doesn't want to open in Excel for Mac. When I change the file to open with Excel, I get a warning that the publisher is not trusted. Any help here? I wish to use Power BI and Analyze in Excel that I have on my Mac without needing to go to Windows machine.

Re: Analyze in Excel on Mac - ODC file doesn't open

Hi there

As far as I know you will require a Windows machine for Analyze in Excel. This is because it actually installs the SSAS Drivers, which are only developed for Windows machines.

Re: Analyze in Excel on Mac - ODC file doesn't open

HI @dhooger,

 

AFAIK, analyze in excel feature requests a excel plug-in, current power bi team seems not develop a mac version so you can't use this feature on mac system.
