Data Model damaged, Cannot connect to Access 2013 from within Excel 2013

10-11  Source: Network gathering  Views:7 

Recently I am not able to use PowerPivot for Excel 2013 and I cannot connect to my Access 2013 database tables from within Excel 2013. Whenever I try to click on a slicer in my Excel worksheet, it gives me the following error: "Excel was unable to load
a necessary component. This component might have been damaged or deleted. Reinstall the client software or data source driver software for your database."
I am using Microsoft Office Pro Plus 2013 on Windows 7, 64-bit version. I have tried reinstalling Microsoft SQL Compact Edition 2005 and reinstalling Office 2013. I have run out of ideas and am a loss what to do next ? 
Can anyone help point in the right direction for a possible solution to this problem ??? 
Would appreciate all help.
Thank you.
The problem with being punctual is, there's nobody there to appreciate it !!!
