  1. 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.

  2. Excel is getting worse for each version

    Excel is getting worse for each version. Before it was easy for me to import csv or skv files. Now you think that Excel is smarter than me and converts everything to skv. If I copy and paste from notepad it defaults to skv WHY, I HAVENT ASKED YOU TO CONVERT!!! I often want to treat data as CSV NOT SKV. Before I pasted the data in column A and then used TEXT to columns. Worked perfectly. Now everything gets corrupt because YOU have decided that YOU know whats best. I do this sometimes 20 times a day and half…

  3. Raise an error if Workbooks.Open text file exceeds row limit

    The debacle in the UK over lost Covid-19 results appears to have been a silent failure by Excel when the number of rows in a CSV/text file exceeded the sheet dimensions. This was in Excel 2003 (or earlier) but the same behaviour is in the latest Excel. Workbooks.Open "File.csv" does NOT raise an error if the file line count exceeds the sheet rows, which is inconsistent with the UI File>Open behaviour, which DOES show an error message. So make them consistent please. My analysis is at https://sysmod.wordpress.com/2020/10/13/uk-covid-19-track-trace-excel-snafu-uncontrolled-spreadsheets-lead-to-data-loss/

    A related post but not referring to raising an error is at https://excel.uservoice.com/forums/274580-excel-for-the-web/suggestions/10550871-csv-import-exceeding-row-limit

  6. Name The New Tab The Same As The Power Query Table Being Imported

    When importing a power query into a worksheet and choosing the New worksheet option, automatically name the worksheet tab the same name as the query.
    Example: I have a sales table (or query) in Access. Using Get and Transform, I connect to the table in Excel Power Query Editor. The table name in the Power Query Editor is "FactSales". After transforming the data as needed I choose

    Close and Load To

    x Table
    - PivotTable Report
    - PivotChart
    - Only Create Connection
    Where do you want to put this data
    Existing worksheet:

       =$A$1
    

    x New worksheet

    After choosing Table and…

  11. How about delivering what you claim to support?

    I can't find a place to submit bugs but many stocks are missing, even though its a supported exchange in Excel. For example, the Singapore stock exchange (XSES) stocks are missing.

  13. It should be able to download data from bank accounts as far back as I select. Or at least to download statements and merge in.

    It should be able to download data from bank accounts as far back as I select. Or at least to download statements and merge in to Excel Money. Form what I see of it so far it is not even close to the old Microsoft Money hopefully there will be further updates or maybe a paid version.

  15. free Exchange Recovery Software

    There is lots of Exchange EDB to PST Recovery Tool in online market, but problem is that how we can select the best tool in various tools, it is very difficult to choose the right one, so as per my experience I would like to suggest a proficient third-party tool such as Enstella Exchange EDB Recovery Software. It helps to convert EDB to PST without any hurdle. The software is quite powerful to even repair corrupt exchange database and restore all EDB items back into the previous format without any data loss.

    Download freeware to click here-https://www.enstella.com/exchange-email-recovery.html

  17. PowerBI: don't limit uservoice to Busienss/Edu users!

    I tried to post some suggestions to PowerBI but could not because I am not a student and not employed.
    .
    Why am I a second class customer just because I am learning PowerBI on my own using a hotmail account?

  18. PowerQuery: M / DAX etc make the language syntax case insensitive.

    Some of the command languages in the "PowerTools" the commands are case sensitive.
    .
    DON'T DO THAT!
    .
    If there are 2 parallel commands defined by case. That is just swank. It is a real PITA getting syntax errors just because I match start the command case spelling.

  19. power query: ungroup steps

    While it is handy to group similar steps into one, it would also be handy to be able to ungroup when needed. For example to remove/undo one without removing the other(s).

    Make it graphical since many people have no clue how to edit the underlying code.

  20. power query: number steps

    In powerquery, please add option to display automatic step numbers. It would help when consulting with someone else to be able to refer to a simple step number. Some people are too lazy to rename steps so it can be hard to refer to a specific step in a query
