Breaking Changes

  • After upgrading to Version 2024 Release 3, Nectari will no longer be compatible with earlier versions of the Excel Add-in.




This release of Nectari has a new package for the Excel Add-in installation. Before installing version 2024 R3, you need to uninstall your current version of Excel Add-in. Once version 2024 R3 will be installed, subsequent installations will not require any uninstallations.

  • The Excel Add-in installer now automatically detects the most recent installed version of Excel and its architecture (32 or 64 bits) and automatically attaches the add-in to Excel.

  • The Server installer now does the DCOM setup for the Excel Add-in distribution.

  • The BI Service will no longer exist as of Release 2024 R3.


    Web Server now represents the Web Client component and the BI Service Windows Service.

Web Server

  • Improvement of Nectari's overall performance, such as logging in, opening a view, report, or dashboard.

  • The Dashboard and Report interfaces now have a new tooltip to assist in identifying the source of the view.


  • Security improvements were made in DataSync.
