The Team Tab has disappeared from the Ribbon in Excel (or error TF80012)

Sometimes it happens that because of a crash or unknown issue the Team Tab in Excel disappears. Usually you will notice this, because

you get an error when you try to open a excel sheet with TFS data.

The reason is that this Add-In is disabled. To make it appear again do the following

  • Start Up Excel
  • Click the office Button and choose “Excel Options” totally at the bottom

  • Click Add Ins, Choose Com Add-ins from combobox and click Go

  • Check Team Foundation Add In and click OK
  • Restart Excel

  1. I have done this twice, but when I re-enter Excel, the “Team Foundation Add-in” is unchecked again. I have TFS 2010 and TFS 2010 Power Tools installed.
