      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

            Blake - you had an employee SAM RADAKOVITZ http://samradapps.com/datepicker/
            Who built a date picker which you guys never used.
            Why not just "borrow" it

                    Hi Ashvini - Specifying a range as a method of passing a parameter to a query was there in the good old Database query
                    So logically it should have been in Power Query right from the beginning

                              Great suggestion – thanks again for taking the time to put it on this site and for the thoughtful followup comments. This is pretty related to some other work we’ve got going and already has a fair number of votes, so we’ll work on getting plans in place now and hope to get started on this soon.

                              Thanks,

                                  Thanks for all of the votes – the team has definitely taken notice of the activity around this issue. We moved to SDI as a result of customer requests, but it looks like we’ve got work to do to really nail the use cases people care about. From a read over the comments, I see a number of cases that we will want to investigate further as we think through MDI vs SDI. We’ll get someone from the team to take a deeper look, and we may reach out to some of you for more clarification as we go. Thanks again for all the voting and passion here!

                                      Great suggestion E Bow. Thanks for taking the time to tell us about changes you’d like to see – we’re listening. We’ll take a look at this one. As always, folks should keep voting for the things they like the most – we’ll generally be prioritizing things according to the number of votes they get.

                                        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,
