If you have an excel spreadsheet that uses PowerPivot (SQL Server 2012) and Office 2010, you have to open the file in a specific way to keep using PowerPivot.  Basically, double clicking the file to open it will result in a missing PowerPivot tab.  This can be resolved by opening Excel and dragging the file in, or opening through Excel.  Double Clicking the file to open should be a supported path.

Hi Andrew,

We tried this on the lastest version of PowerPivot for Office 2010 and were unable to repro this issue. I will close it, please reopen it with repro steps if it still repros for you.
