    Thank you for taking your time to suggest and vote for allowing interaction with Excel while in Power Query Editor window. We do think that this suggestion has merit but we don’t think that we’ll be able to devote time to it in the near future. We’ll continue tracking votes for it.

    Wow....honestly, it is pretty ridiculous that this issue even exists! Especially with how long PQ has been around.

    I'm trying to automate some complex data manipulations with PQ and was flabbergasted that I couldn't navigate to my already existing end result in Excel while building the query. Am I supposed to memorize all the steps I need to build?! I'm getting around this for now by using screenshots.

    Could you imagine having this issue with the Visual Basic Editor window? Please, please fix this!

    Huge progress update toward historical data! We have released our preview of the StockHistory function! https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/stockhistory-function-1ac8b5b3-5f62-4d94-8ab8-7504ec7239a8

    However, this is only available to our Beta Channel at the moment, so when it is rolled out to General Availability, I will be sure to update the status to completed.

    If you are able to use the feature in preview and have feedback, please send-a-frown for us to review.

    Hey James, is there any update on the progress of historical stock prices? Is this project still alive?

    This is great news James! While I personally won't really be diving into this feature too much until we get access to historical data, this is definitely a step in the right direction!! Can't wait to see more!

    Thanks for supporting this feature. We won’t be able to in the near future, but we understand that it would be a nice improvement. Even though it seems like a straightforward idea, it is quite complex since named ranges can be dynamic, meaning that the range is calculated when the workbook is calculated.

    We’ll continue tracking votes for this suggestion.

    I desperately what that option added!! I can't tell you how many times I still have something copied and want to just insert a blank row. Cue a frustrated sigh, hitting the Esc key to cancel the copy, and then trying again.......

    Just put a "Center Across" button in the Alignment Group on the Ribbon. There's a great little spot for it between the "Wrap Text" and "Merge & Center buttons" :)

    Would also like to see it work vertically as well.

    And if you are up for more improvements, it would be nice if Center Across text would display when some columns are collapsed via a group (Merged cells do this currently - see: https://www.thespreadsheetguru.com/blog/when-merging-cells-is-needed).

    I made a workaround add-in for the mean time that simulates what I was recommending in this suggestion.

    Here's the link: http://www.thespreadsheetguru.com/blog/add-center-across-selection-button-to-excel-home-tab

    It has been documented for a long time that the Center Across functionality is much better to use in place of Merge & Center. Most people don't even know the functionality exists because it is buried.in a dialog box

    I propose creating a button for it and moving it to the Home tab. There is even a place for it right under the Merge & Center button. I think having it on the Home tab with go a long way in getting people to create more user-friendly spreadsheet in the workplace :)

    Thank you for taking the time to share your request for linking min/max values of a chart axis to the cell value! We think this suggestion has merit; however, we don’t expect to devote time to it in the near future. We will continue tracking votes and comments here, and will keep this suggestion under consideration for future development.

    Thank you again, and please keep sharing your thoughts!
