    Thanks for the suggestion. I think I’ve seen some related requests, I’ll look at merging them to make sure the votes properly reflect the ask. We’ll prioritize this into the execution pipe appropriately based on the number of votes.

    Cheers,

We’ve actually had this on our list to get to for some time and have been balancing doing this against other… The more the community helps us rank it higher, the better the signal on overall importance… so, for those that haven’t voted for this but want it, do vote!

    thanks

    Hi Deepak,

    Thanks for logging this issue. I agree this would be quite useful, especially as Power BI is emerging as a hub for business data.

    This request is slightly different than what PBI Desktop does. PBI Desktop essentially provides a Live Connect essentially deferring the model to the service and limiting the experience to visualizations so it’s not importing data into the report. So there’re two possible outcomes you could be looking for:
    1. Allow users to import data into Excel as query tables, just like one can from an external store like SQL Server or Oracle. This provides fine grained data retrieval.
    2. Create a new PivotTable that summarizes data on PBI service.

    The PBI Publisher addin performs #2. Is that what you’re looking for? Or would you rather have #1 if you had to choose?

    Others coming new to this suggestion, please be sure to add your…

    Hi Ashvini,

    Thanks for responding to the idea. The very fact that Power BI Publisher for Excel has many bugs and PBI Desktop already has "PBI Service Data model" connector, I came up with this idea that Excel should have PBI Data Model connector. So, I meant only a native connector to PBI Dataset to explore and test the same through Pivot table connection.

    We have been using Power BI for a long time now and I want to state this very clearly that 99% of the users are only interested in drill-down analysis with Pivot Table and nothing else. We have tried all sorts of training in Power BI but Excel overpowers everything else. Therefore, not having native connectivity with a PBI Dataset and with so many bugs in PBI Publisher it becomes so critical for any organization. Hence, my idea.

    Thanks again for listening to us!

    Thanks for the feedback! We’re seeing a number of different posts about lookup functions – we’ll be taking a close look at this area and thinking it through. We’ll prioritize the asks according to votes along with other requests on the site. So I encourage people to keep voting if it’s something they really want to see the priority raised on.

    Best,

    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.
