    See this discussion in the Excel Tech Community for a specific example of what happens. https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/excel-blog/announcing-xlookup/bc-p/830248/highlight/true#M708

    Attached workbook will show how this works.

    Good news. We are in the planning stages for improving the Unhide Sheet dialog box so that you can select multiple sheets and unhide them at the same time.

    Thanks for supporting this suggestion.

    I wouldn't hold my breath on this. MS seems to be moving to Power Platform for this kind of thing, which does support Excel as a backend, and a front-end soon. Between Power Apps and Power BI, plus whatever data source you want, like CDS or on-prem sources like SQL server or even Access databases, all of the functionality you discuss is there, and much MUCH more.

    It seems they are removing features from Access, not adding. They will not add Power Query to it (that idea with well over 1K votes was rejected), Data Access Pages was killed, Pivot queries were killed, and the Access to SQL upsizing wizard was killed.

    They haven't officially said of course, but Access seems to only get nominal features to keep it on par with other Office 365 apps, but there are no real breakthrough features.

    FWIW, in the Office 365 Insiders build of Excel, Power Query has a "Power Platform" menu as a data source that is grayed out, and one of the members on the team said functionality was coming. I would hope that would include Power BI data sets, Data Flows, and CDS, just like it does on Power BI Desktop. I keep checking every week. It first showed up a month or so ago, or at least that was when I first noticed it. So it is coming....

    Thanks for your support of this suggestion and all the great ideas in the comments. We have at least one improvement planned (resizing the dialogs – see link in the description), and we’re looking at some additional improvements.

    If you have specific ideas that aren’t already listed, please add them in a comment.

    Personally I think ms would like to see Access die. PowerQuery has replaced virtually all of our “read” queries and SharePoint lists, excel tables and even SQL Express are easy to use. 2 years ago ms started giving access to all office pro licenses in 365. They seem to no longer consider it a premium product.

    Thanks very much for your votes. And to those who took the time to fill in the survey, thank you! This is a brief update to let y’all know that we’ve started work on this feature request along with the one on changing numbers to scientific notation.

    I’m happy to let you know that we are in the planning stages to make Excel for Windows scroll without jumping to the edge of the cell so you’ll be able to scroll smoothly. We don’t yet have a target date, but wanted to tell you about our plans.

    We appreciate all the votes and comments supporting this suggestion.

    Thanks – Steve K [Excel]

    Wow.

    Thank you to all those participated in our survey. What an amazing number of responses, many of them with very deep content. We’re processing the over ten thousand responses(!), and already appreciate the time so many of you took to answer with passion and experience.

    Please know this survey is used to help influence various topics – both on Python as well as other related topics that the comments started to bleed into. Given the passion, I want to be clear this remains an area of exploration for us, without any specific timeline.

    We’ll provide updates as we progress on this feature request.

    Thanks!

    @sergie - Mac, iOS, and iPadOS all have Dynamic Array functions for Insiders. Not sure about Android, but it will if it doesn't now.

    Has anyone tried this lately? I opened Excel on a PC I am 99% sure I haven't used PQ on and formula bar was showing. It was the 1906 Monthly Targeted build.

    I have great news to share. We are planning to make the Conditional Formatting Rules Manager and rules dialogs resizable. Thanks for all the votes and comments for this suggestion.

    We’ll provide more updates here as we get closer to releasing the update.

    The biggest shortcoming to the new Dynamic Array functions is the inability to use them in a table.
