    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    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!

        Please do add it in office home and student version too. And how long will it take till i can upgrade my excel for the one that includes powerpivot

        Hi, which Home and Student edition build will this be available in and when? I'm looking at an 1806 version and I can't see PowerPivot
        Thanks

        Excel-lent news! (sorry for the pun ;-))
        It is really great news, cannot thank you enough to finally have a consistent base for doing models, without the licensing strangeness that was before.
        Finally DAX / modelling skills will be useful and share a natural evolution path from Excel to PowerBI and/or SSAS Tabular.

        Because @Mimi - this was a licensing decision that involved little to no coding and was just a decision to include it with all Office SKUs for Windows. The one you linked to is a massive code change to go back to the old way. I doubt they will revert that given they are now targeting the new Sets feature in Windows Redstone 5 due this year, and it won't work effectively with all documents in a single container. But they are looking at specific use cases as the post says at the top.

        No exact date for Office 2019, but scheduled for the 2nd half of this year, which could be July 1 or December 31, or somewhere in between. MS hasn't finalized a date yet.

        Good news! Perhaps now, at last, spreadsheet programming will begin to move towards something more professional.

        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?

      • Frank commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

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

      • Raymond Wong commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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?
