  3. Get & Transform (PowerQuery) Keystore should support Auth key in header

    The PowerQuery (M language) Web.Contents() function supports a limited number of web authentication methods.

    I wasted quite a bit of time trying to use Bearer Token based authentication in PQ to access the RESTful interface on a backend server before I realised the server expects the Token to be supplied in the HTTP, header, but PQ will only supply the Token in the query parameter string. The documentation on this area is lacking, and there is no way to debug the web query with the server from Excel.

    Request

    Support the option for authentication via a Bearer Token (API Key)…

  4. New Data Type - Datetime AND Location (Spacetime)

    I know that a whole host of new data types are coming to Excel soon (https://insider.office.com/en-us/blog/new-data-types-in-excel) but one data type that is missing and would be super cool to have is Datetime AND Location (maybe call it Spacetime?) With date/datetime and location one can quickly import various astronomical data such as sunrise, sunset, day length, moonrise, moonset, and moon phase among many other types of information for a given combination of date and city. See the fantastic website https://www.timeanddate.com/ for example information to include.

  6. Transpose a column with many multiline records of data to a table

    I would like to be able transpose multiple records of sometimes varying length data from a 1d column to a table. Preferably by both GUI, a function and data import/query/transform environment. Mapping variable names in the source data could be used for handling variable length records.

    When I import logs with sensor data they often come as a text file with a single variable or variable name and value pair on each line.
    Sometimes the number of variables per record varies but there is always a timestamp or record ID to indicate the first field in a record.

  8. Allow transaction data to be backed up to local drive

    Allow transaction data to be saved to a local drive for backup purposes. Also, allow such saved data to be imported. If something screws up one's account, a new account will only get 30 to 90 days of prior data, meaning all older data is lost forever. It is inexcusable to expect users to rely on a program to show or manipulate data that does not have the ability to back up the data.

  13. #PowerBIDataTypes should be available with Power BI pro

    This should be available with a powerBI pro license not only on upgrade to E5, Those of us in smaller orgs who are experimenting with BI and researching how valuable it could be for us as it evolves need exactly this sort of capacity to demonstrate a good business case to excel users. They will see a direct benefit to themselves in this. But we are not going to upgrade to E5 yet.

  14. Add a configurable data source for REST API's to enable import of data from multiple cloud apps

    It would be great to have a configurable data source for REST API sources that could be saved as a user or machine DSN to enable pulling data from cloud apps without using third party tools.

  15. O365 excel Data ribbon not showing import csv, txt, etc...

    My Data ribbon tab is not showing import, or much of anything.
    What am I doing wrong?

    TRying to use the new import to PDF as announced here;

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/excel-blog/announcing-data-import-from-pdf-documents/ba-p/1569202

    But even the basic csv and txt import is gone? i've asked all over the place. Everyone says "just go to the data tab" But everything is gone.

    Any ideas?

  16. remove empty rows and columns automatically

    When importing data from other formats, say a pdf, the data is often formatted badly with lots of empty columns and rows between fields of useful data, these are usually minimised and get in the way of performing useful functions.I would like the ability to automatically remove any column or row within a highlighted data area, where the whole column or row contains no data. the sheet I am looking at currently goes up to column EY, but only has 12 columns of actual data. similarly it is 597 rows high and only should be around 100.

  17. NaN and other special numbers in cells

    Excel needs to properly integrate the standard double number format in cell values. Special numbers including NaN (Not-a-Number), Infinity, Epsilon (subnormal numbers) and Negative Zero are supported in all modern programming languages, Power Query, SQL server and many other apps. Lack of proper numeric support in sheets leads to problems interfacing with external data and add-ins.

    In fact the full range of IEEE754 values can be returned using a user defined function ( https://github.com/lhem/excel/blob/master/SpecialNum.xlsm ). These special numbers can be useful in formulas for representing null data, large numbers and plotting blanks in charts but they need to be fixed…

  18. cells with fixed values

    Why are we still using $F$23 to fix a value of the cell as a non-variable.
    Can't it be set with a control or something? Or am I out dated?

  20. Getting Data from another excel file copies the cell format and style

    I want to have a separate excel sheet that can get an updated data from another worksheet and also follows the cell format and style.

    I can only get an updated data but it won't follow the cell format and style

    If I do a copy/paste, I can get the data with the format and style but it won't update any data if there are changes from the other workbook
