In SharePoint Online\ Office 365 under “Business data” section, excel web part is not available

This has been very common question that people can’t find the excel web part in their Office 365 subscription.

Small business plan after the upgrade.
To check if you are using Office 365 after the service upgrade, you can refer to the article below:

If not, please feel free to let us know.

First of all I would like to inform that that the Business Data Webparts are not available on all of Small business plans, it’s only available on the Enterprise Plan E3 and E4.

For more detailed information, you can refer to form in the article below:

If you have E3 and E4 subscription then try below steps:
1. Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Collection Features
2. Scrolled to SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features and click Activate
3. Now Site Actions -> Site Settings -> Site Features
4. Scrolled to SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features and click Activate

I have seen that some people tried to download the Excel Web Access Web Part from Enterprise E3 plan and upload it to Small business plan SharePoint Online site but it gives error.

    Thank you for this, however I still do not see the excel web part under business data.

    I have the E3 Office 365 subscription (currently in 30-day trial but will purchase). I followed all 4 steps, then logged out, closed browser and checked item 4 was still active several times; however I still do not see the excel web app under business data.

    Any suggestions? Could it be the trial or do need to wait longer than 15 minutes?

    Thanks!!
