  1. Please include other data in the new Data Types feature in Excel. The data for dividends is totally missing.

    For dividend/income investers, we really need dividend information if the data types for stocks is to be useful.

  4. Organisation data from excel instead of visio to excel

    Visio can connect to outlook exchange server to get the organisation chart and the same can be exported to excel. There are limitations that we can get only the subordinates / reportees and not drilled up level and shall filter only for a person might be due to formatting constraint on the visio.

    Improvement for this could be that excel should have an option to connect to exchange server to get the organisation data both top and bottom hierarchy of a person by getting the input (or full extract of everyone in a company) and should avoid use of visio…

  5. I am surprised and disappointed that the Data type Stocks and geography is only avail in the 365 subscription even tho I have the office2019

    The Stocks and geography Data type looks a promising feature per description on the Microsoft website. I am disappointed that even I have the Office2019 version, that feature is NOT avail.
    Both 365 and office2019 are paid app/service NOT free so their feature should be identical, esp for something important like data type

  7. metadata

    I would love to see the Get Data from Folder allow me to get metadata from the files in the folder. Such as metadata from Audio(MP3), Photo(Jpg) or Video(MP4, MKV), etc. This method currently gets me the File Name and Size but that is about it useful.

    This would allow a user a method to create a list of all their files with data that's useful and important and keep it up to date with a click.

  8. ADD IN FOR SAGE ONE ACCOUNTING

    How about collaborating with Sage for an Add-in feature like Essbase that allows direct integration with Sage ONE ACCOUNTING.
    This will allow pushing of data from Excel into Sage and creating quotes etc.

  9. Connector for QuickBooks Online

    We are currently developing and testing a dotnet interop addon that allows an Access app to integrate with QBO via API calls, to do things like importing/exporting data, and was wondering if anyone would be interested in having Microsoft create an Excel connector for QBO.

  10. Columns matching in queries append.

    In power query, append queries, I suggest having 2 methods of matching columns between queries, either by names or by order of the columns, based on user choice, to elaborate, if user choose the order, headers of the main query is used and data of the following queries are put in place by the position index of the columns, and if names are chosen, system will lookup based on the headers to place the data on right columns.

  14. Two links in one cell when copying information

    I'm dealing with an HTML table that contains two links in some cells (urls attached to text). When I copy the table into excel, the links only work on the cells that contain one link. In the cells that contain two, neither link works, and I can't even get the url out of excel. I've tried just about everything to get this information into a workable file, but short of understanding how to manipulate huge html tables, it seems impossible. Excel should be able to handle something as simple as two links in a single cell.

  15. The new stocks data type should include ex-dividend date and earnings date. That is extremely useful information.

    The new stocks data type is great, but it would be even more useful if it were possible to get ex-dividend dates and earnings announcement dates. This is very important information, and it should not be too difficult to add,
