  1. edit a power query parameter in Excel interface

    Create a Edit Parameter Button to allow users to change the value of a Parameter defined in Power Query editor but in the Excel user interface so that users don't need to go to the Query editor to make changes.
    This will be extremely useful for protected workbooks where changes cant be made by launching the query editor

  6. OData CRUD Operatations (Create, Read, Update, Delete)

    Excel should support the ability to create, update, and delete items in an OData source. Its a real shame you have to buy a third party add in to do this! (https://www.cdata.com/drivers/odata/excel/)

  7. Make power query in excel = power BI

    Hello,
    Many of power query functions which has been in power BI for years still doesn't exist in excel version!

    For example Html.Table,Web.BrowserContents and so on.

    As far as i understand both excel and PB using the same engine under the hood.

    Please make excel power query equal to power BI one. Thanks!

  9. Paste into address bar (web query browser)

    For web queries that utilize that little web browser, you cannot paste a new URL. For example, copy a URL, right click on an existing query table and "Edit Query...", then try to paste into the address bar. Nothing. Clipboard data needs to translate.

  11. Make terminology 'intuitive' ; 'Simplify'; 'link data'

    Even the list above - I don't know what a macros and add in is,and every day there is new terminology, vlook ups... I do have some idea of what I wan't to achieve though. How about tailoring terminology for 'jo bloggs' rather than IT specialists - it will still work for everyone.

    I'm trying to combine workbooks and link fields across worksheets so I don't have to update data in each worksheet/ workbook. I'm finding it a very difficult task. Thanks for asking. I can't attach file for security reasons.

  12. Power Query should allow Get from Folder from a Ondrive folder URL (not the mapped folder on the local file system)

    Power Query allows Get from Folder from a local file system. If we are using Onedrive, we have to first map the folders to that local file system. We cannot directly enter the URL of the Onedrive folder as an https URL.

    This would avoid the problem of having queries break when the local file system is different between, say, my work and my home PCs. EG the work folder may be C:\Users(work userid)\Onedrive - (my onedriveID)\folder name. But my home folder is C:\Users(home userid)\Onedrive - (my onedriveID)\folder name.
    I'd be happy to use "try Folder.Files (work*) otherwise Folder.Files (home*)…

  15. Pasting Info Into Custom Sort, Custom List Box

    In previous version of Excel, I could copy a line of data from one workbook and paste it into the Custom Sort box of another workbook to pull up the info I needed for a 3rd workbook. Now, the Paste feature is totally disabled in the MS Office Professional Plus 2019. Please bring it back. Creating a custom list does not help me because my list changes every single day. (I am able to paste the list in Word, recopy, and paste it in the Custom List, but I want to avoid this extra step)

  19. Turn off auto-date formatting

    Why isn't there a way to turn off the auto-formatting of values which excel thinks are dates? People have complained about this for at least 10 years, maybe longer. I just don't understand why there isn't a way to turn this off.
