  1. Add Sharepoint Folder connector to M365 Business and Business Premium

    Crazy that M365 Business and Business Premium come with SharePoint but that version of Excel does not have the Power Query SharePoint Folder Connector

    It should also be included in Office 2021 Standalone versions when released

  2. Disable/Enable steps in Power Query

    It would be great to have a feature that will disable/enable the steps in power query. This will allow user to see the behavior of the data on the depending steps without deleting steps.

    Currently the work around is to comment the step and reference the previous step to the next step.

    Having this feature with a click of button would be great & ease our life!

    if you support this idea please vote for it

  4. Property in Power Query "Enable background refresh" - default to unchecked

    When creating a new query in Power Query, by default the property "Enable background refresh" is enabled. Please make this property be unchecked by default. The cases where I need this property disabled outgrow at large the cases where the background refresh can be turned on.

  5. Add Option To Disable Disclaimer

    As it stands, every time I open up an Excel file that has connections to get Stock data, there is a disclaimer right below the Ribbon. I want to disable this message instead of having to press the X every time I open the file.

  6. Money in Excel should allow manual entry of transactions.

    Money in Excel should allow manual entry of older transactions so that the whole year's transactions can be contained in 1 sheet. Right now Money can only import about 90 days of transactions and January and February are missing from my transaction log.

  10. Power Query Text/CSV should be Texto/CSV in Portuguese

    Hi. On Data / Get & Transform Data, the option "From Text/CSV" should be translated to "De Texto/CSV". There is a missing letter "o" in the current translation. Thanks.

  11. Make it possible to automatically make first letters of sentences capitalized.

    Autocorrect/capitalize first letter only works in text fields, not cells. To achieve this with cells, you have to use intricate formulas that are impossible to use if you have varying types of data across the same rows or columns. I'm using Excel to create interlinear texts as part of learning several languages at once, I use Google Translate to translate short standardized sentences without contexts that confuse the automatic translation. The problem is that Google Translate does not capitalize the first letters of translations in several languages, including Spanish and Russian. I'm going to add 5/10/15 sentences every day for…

  12. Toggle leading zeros

    I would love to see a toggle setting to turn on and off stripping leading zeros from numeric varchar data imported from external sources. Excel automatically strips leading zeros. Sometimes I want this to happen and sometimes I don’t.

  16. Recognize decimal point when importing CSV

    This problem is at least 25 years old: when your local Windows standard has the komma as decimal separator, somehow Excel is too stupid to recognize the point as decimal separator when importing a CSV-file. One look in the CSV and you see that it uses the komma between the columns and the point in the numbers. Hard to believe it when you first see this go wrong and then an old man like me tells you this is how Excel works!!! Please, Microsoft, finish your software.
