I would also like to see you improve bugs in Excel before moving on to bigger flashier things. Like stopping the comment boxes from moving to the bottom or top of the spreadsheet and becoming very small. I currently have to use a macro to correct this. Sorry to complain, you have a really great product here. It would also be nice to see you add the features that make like easier seen on AbleBits and Kutools add-ins. I just say, to make Excel more practical for everyday work, and fixing bugs while also working on the bigger items. Excel is a very good product

I’m happy to announce that your input has had another direct impact on the product. In this case, a decision has been made to have Power Pivot be available in all Windows editions (“SKUs”) of Excel! This means the Business, Home, Standard, etc.. all of these will have Power Pivot. As your comments have indicated, Power Pivot has moved from targeting a specialized audience to generally useful capability for working with data in spreadsheets. As such, it makes sense to make this as broadly available as possible.
We have started rolling this change out with the April Current Channel updates (Builds 9330 and beyond). I’m also happy to announce that these SKU changes will be reflected on the upcoming 2019 version as well.
Thank you for pushing for this!
I am trying to find a version of Excel to convert to that includes Power Pivot and I will read the data on the box and there is no mention of Power Pivot. Users on forums have said they have tried to upgrade, thinking they are getting PPvt, and they do not get it. This has been a very difficult process but you need to market this better with easier help to download and explain what versions of Excel contain it and what don't, how to upgrade, etc. The downloadable version you see often on Google is for Excel 2010 and I have 2016 but it is the online subscription version of Office 365 Personal. I guess I'm going to have to buy the standalong version.
