    Hi all! We are happy to let you know that in addition to refreshing your data from supported sources, you can now import data from local files such as Excel workbooks, and Text and CSV files with Power Query in Excel for Mac. This new functionality is available to Beta channel users running version 16.50 (build 21050400) or later.
    You can check out the blog for this new feature here:

  2. A better Name manager

    Dear all,
    What I love, please read this a need, is a better Name manager.
    The size of the list is way to small. If you work a lot with names, then you get longer names which are not easy to select.
    Also would like to see an easier way to replace, rename and exchange Names and references. When I make a Template sheet with names/reverences and want to make multiply copies bij code or manualy, its a crime to change or update the Name.
