  6. Option pour changer le séparateur décimal dans Editeur Power Query

    Bonjour,
    si vous utilisez Récupérer et transformer des données, à partir d'un fichier texte/CSV et que dans ce fichier vous avez des nombres qui sont formatés avec un point comme séparateur décimal ces nombres sont interprétés comme du texte. Si vous essayez de changer en nombre décimal tous les nombres sont remplacés par "error".
    Voir fichiers joint.
    Il n'y a pas comme dans Excel la possibilité de modifier le séparateur décimal comme lorsque l'on ouvre un fichier CSV avec assistant importation texte étape 3 bouton "Avancé"
    Ce problème rend l'utilisation de Récupérer et transformer … inutilisable avec de tels fichiers. …

  8. Single method for external workbook reference

    Right now there are basically two ways to pull data into a target workbook from a source workbook:
    - Query it as a data connection (in which case you have to close the source workbook every time you want to refresh the data)
    - Use an external link in a cell formula (in which case the source workbook has to be open if you want to get up to date data)

    This is harder than it needs to be. Regardless of the method of pulling in external data you should be able to refresh it regardless of the status of…

  9. I need to delete duplicates but want to keep last one entry instead of first one entry. So, data -> remove duplicates is not working.

    I need to delete duplicates but want to keep last one entry instead of first one entry. So, data -> remove duplicates is not working.

    Also, note that my first column is key column to find unique entries and I don't have any column to apply filter or sort so that I can sort the data in reverse (i.e. date) and keep first one and then remove sort etc.

  10. Please merge Type Change steps in PQ even if the current step has locale

    I mean the situation when end user is on the step where changing types of columns happen, and the step contains locale (which, by the way, is added sometimes automatically) AND user change some types of columns. PQ now adds a new step without possibility to change the current step.
    I think it is much more convenient for end user to show the locale of the current step and as whether user wants to change current step or add a new.

  12. turn off automatic date conversion

    Opening scientific data in excel for review or analysis purposes is a nightmare in Excel. Some values, gene names and other text automatically transforms into dates and then the data is corrupted. Changing cell format in this case corrupts the data even further and there's no way to return to the original value/text, since the data corrupts when opening the file. This is the worst functionality in Excel and I don't know anyone who benefits from the automatic transformation of dates. Please the date transformation optional setting for those who might need it!

  13. EXCEL DDE

    Resulta muy importante mantener el uso de DDE en Excel. Para poder utilizar combinacion de correspondencia con Word.
    El tipo de combinacion DDE se encuentra presente en Excel desde sus origenes. Es el unico tipo de combinacion que mantiene los formatos de numero tal como se reflejan en el Excel para su combinacion en un formulario de Word.

  14. Table.ExpandTableColumn is not type - safe.

    I.e. if you expand a column, types of inner table are lost - all the expanded columns, appeared in the outer table after expantion, are of type any, despite the fact that all the types are set in inner table.

  15. Stock Data Type can't find mutual fund

    The stock data type should recognize all stocks and mutual funds. The capability indicates it is powered by Bing; Bing recognizes the ticker symbol. Specifically, the mutual fund 'FSHCX' - 'Fidelity Select Health Care Services Portfolio' was not recognized in my first experiencing trying the feature.

  17. При импорте текстовых данных (CSV) Добавить в настройку определения числовых данных пункт "Кроме значений, обрамленных ограничителем строк"

    Предлагаю добавить в настройку определения числовых данных пункт "Кроме значений, обрамленных ограничителем строк".

    В этом случае можно будет, выгружая данные из учетной системы в файл CSV, текстовые данные заключать в кавычки и они не будут искажаться при импорте в excel, даже если тип столбца установлен "general" (общий).

    Делать это по умолчанию, без выноса в настройку импорта чисел, не следует.

    У других пользователей может встретиться исторически сложившийся вариант, где в импортируемых CSV все данные, включая числа, заключаются в кавычки.

    Также возможны CSV файлы, где разделитель полей и разделитель целой и дробной части чисел одинаковы.

    В этом случае у пользователей тоже поломается…

  18. Scraping made simple!

    hi
    I would love to use Excel for day to day scraping but currently it's way too complex.
    Both VBA and Power BI are not user friendly and you have to be advanced in Excel to use it.
    It's frustrating and it forces you to use google search for solving problems.
    I would like Excel to open browser window and allow me to select which exact part of the site I want to scrape (EVEN IF IT'S NOT A TABLE) then menu should open to select corresponding cell and frequency at which I would like to do it. Then format,…

  19. Combine multiple files into one with multiple tabs

    Adobe has an option where you can select multiple files, right click, and combine them all together into one pdf. I think something similar for excel would be excellent: select multiple excel files, right click, and combine them into one spread sheet separated by tab.
