    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…

    @Ed - Unlikely to happen.

    The Fear of Excel in the Power BI team and the weak leadership in the Excel team will see Excel lagging far behind power BI Desktop in terms of the Mashup engine ,the Vertipaq Engine and the Visualization layer

    It would be great if the SaveCopyAs method worked with the modern Excel formats (.xlsx,.xlsm,.xlsb)
    Currently supports only xls

    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

    @Ashvini - All your customers are not VP's sitting in corner offices and pushing the forward button on Outlook
    So don't worry about it not being straightforward for us

    Don't worry about us - We will manage.

    Its this worry that gave us the ribbon in 2007 - and you thought it helped
