Hi all,

I’m happy to announce that your input has had another direct impact on the product. In this case, a decision has been made to have Power Pivot be available in all Windows editions (“SKUs”) of Excel! This means the Business, Home, Standard, etc.. all of these will have Power Pivot. As your comments have indicated, Power Pivot has moved from targeting a specialized audience to generally useful capability for working with data in spreadsheets. As such, it makes sense to make this as broadly available as possible.

We have started rolling this change out with the April Current Channel updates (Builds 9330 and beyond). I’m also happy to announce that these SKU changes will be reflected on the upcoming 2019 version as well.

Thank you for pushing for this!

    Thanks for doing this! I signed up for Business Pro just for this feature, but, my account was suspended because I'm not a business. It's great that it will be added to my home addition.

    I have done the update to Office 365 and parts of the manage tab is grayed out. I can't click on it. Is that supposed to happen?

    Hmmmm, a bit to late. Because a lot of us changed to powerbi desktop and services

    Thank you Ashvini Sharma for making this happen.

    I updated Office365 Business today and see the "Manage Data Model" button" under "Data" tab.

    Thank you very much.
    Can you tell when it will be available in Microsoft Office 365?

    Yes! Please! It makes no sense to be able to download Power Query to Excel 2013, Student abs Home version and not being able to get Power Pivot.

    Bravo! What great news!! Thanks Ashvini for helping us push this through and make it a reality. You've just alleviated a fairly significant paint point for some of us.

    Well done Microsoft and thank you Ashvini for defending the cause - it is reassuring to see a mega company respond to the comments of its individual users.

    Indeed are great news! Mr. Sharma, Thank you so much for your feedback, it is really pleasant to feel our voice heard.

    Thanks for acting on the suggestion.

    I hope that MS extends the concept to all features in Office applications. Get back to the original Office concept, only one "version" of an application. Everyone gets the same features. Granted, that may not possible going across operating systems, but within a given OS, everyone should have the same feature set.

    It will be a great way to get the best out of a product for the users of Excel !
