Default table tool design tab is missing in Excel 2007

Hello.

I am running MS Office Home and Student 2007 on Windows XP and am having
issues with excel 2007.

I believe there is suppose to be a tab titled 'table tools design' that
appears when I click anywhere on the table.

However, for some reason this tab does not appear when i click on the table.
I recently had an addin (mindjet manager), which i have removed as i thought
there might have been a conflict, but still nothing.

I can see the tab in word 2007 but just not excel.

Any help massively appreciated..

With kind regards.

Have you actually made a Table using Insert | Table
If so, whenever you select one of its cells there is a context tab (top row
of Ribbon) called Table Tools

Default Excel 2007 - "Insert/Table" grayed out for a worksheet

I have a a worksheet in my spreadsheet that I get through an SQL database using "Data/Connections". I want to convert all the data on this spreadsheet in a "table" format so that I can do the sorting but this option is grayed out on this worksheet. For all other worksheets in the spreadsheet this option is present

I believe it has something to do with the way I am getting this data in this worksheet. I tried copying this data into new spreadsheet but still can't get the "Table" option back on the ribbon.

I will appreciate any help.

Thanks
TX
