      The proposed modification to the UNIQUE function and the addition of DISTINCT and TOPN are natural feedback suggestions with respect to the new and unreleased Dynamic Array functionality.

            Good idea. We are definitely considering chart conditional formatting for a future release. Please continue to vote on it.

            However, could you further elaborate on what you mean by “the value or content of the data labels”? Is the following scenario what you are looking for?

            Scenario
            Create a column chart that shows sales for various stores. (Sales on Y axis, Stores on X Axis.) Use color to represent the profitability of each store. Profit is a numerical value. (Bars in the chart show a gradient fill from green to red where green is high profit and red is low profit.)

            Thanks,

            Folks, there's nothing happening in Excel Chart development. It appears that Power BI visuals will be the new charts in Excel.

              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,
              John [MS XL]

                    Thanks for the post Charles, and for the in person conversation at the latest MVP conference. We definitely understand the ask and will keep our eye on it – it looks like it’s moving up the vote charts pretty quickly. As always, keep upvoting the things you are about most.

                    Best,
                    John [MS XL]

                      VBA is too ancient to waste any development time on improving it. At one time, I was sure that it would be upgraded to VSTA (with an appropriate PIA to speak to Excel), but that has never happened. With cloud computing coming into the picture, we need a replacement language that can work on all platforms, and that language might be JavaScript.

                        Hi all,

                        Yes, we’re considering providing R integration with Excel in the future, the number of votes on this item helps us gauge overall community interest in this, so please pull in others if you think they’d like this as well.

                        regards

                        You're actually considering this? We can't even get the R.Execute function in Power Query, although it's just a matter of enabling the function.

                          Makes no sense at all. After all, with Power Pivot, you can easily switch between Excel and the Power Pivot window. You can't even use another workbook while in the Power Query editor.

                            Hi folks,

                            Thanks for your passion around this. We’ve been discussing this item off and on for some time now and we’d love to get your input.

                            The reason we’ve resisted this is because the R runtime & various packages (and updating their versions) aren’t straightforward for other users to install. This limits sharing such queries across a workgroup.

                            What do you think?

                            For others reading this that’d like us to prioritize this work, please be sure to add your vote since we’re prioritizing our backlog based on these.

                            thanks

                            Since so many Microsoft apps support Open R, R should be installed and managed in one location on every desktop. The installation can be done by Windows, Office 365, Power BI, SQL Server, whatever. When an app is run, it checks for the install and version, and install/update as necessary (including packages). For the Microsoft apps that support R, other instances of R installed elsewhere should be ignored.

                            Hi Ash,

                            Perhaps R Open and associated packages should be installed with Office 365. Updates can be part of Office 365 updates. Then you can add the R.Execute function to M in Excel, which would allow folks to build cross-platform solutions using M & R.

                                  Thanks to Graham for starting this conversation. If you would also like Excel to maintain named range references and structured table references in the “applies to” field for Conditional Formatting rules, please add your comments and vote this one up. We will prioritize accordingly.
