    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.

    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,

    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.

    "Yes, we’re considering providing R integration with Excel in the future"

    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.

    Hi Joana & others,

    Thanks for logging this suggestion. Yes, being able to protect your queries would be quite useful indeed for delivering solutions. We’ll prioritize this based on the interest, so if you’re reading this and haven’t voted as yet, please do so.

    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.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the suggestion Wyn! Thanks also to all the contributors to this thread for the thoughtful discussion and debate.

    Of the many lookup function requests, this is currently one of the highest ranking on UserVoice. Please keep the votes rolling in if you’d like to see this, it helps us prioritize new feature work.

    Get the Office 365 version that supports all of this stuff. As a bonus, you get access to new features you can't live without.
