    If so, where can I download it?

    An MSI file is needed for Excel PTS services on a Windows machine, which we use.
    However, we have a MAC user that is stating that they cannot use the dropdown functionality in Excel for our Pivot tables, I dont have a test MAC machine so I wasnt able to test this.

    I'm assuming there's a PTS package (MSI file) needed for a MAC where can I find this? I'm searching Microsofts website but havent found it yet.
    Any help would be appreciated THANKS!!!

    Pivot Table Services is a Windows-only feature of Microsoft SQL Server.

    I have heard that, if you're using Reporting Services, Mac users can view reports through their web browser. However, this and anything else related to SQL Server is far outside my area of expertise; you'd need to contact your Microsoft account rep to get more details of what would be necessary to get that set up properly (such as versions, how the Mac user would authenticate, etc).
